Giant Pumpkin Drop at Hee Haw Farms (a charity event for babies with the March of Dimes). A favorite of growers. Take your giant and get your family in free. The only 120 year old, homesteaded agra-tainment farm in Utah. See the biggest pumpkin drop in our galaxy. The drop is in its 8th year splatting. Talk to anyone who has been, you will know what to expect. This car crushing, piano smashing, pool splashing, is a pumpkin’s nightmare. The pumpkin doctor prescribes 9 out of 10 growers to go to the drop as the best remedy to ending a season and growing pumpkins again the next year.
