The 2013 World Championship Punkin Chunkin kicked off in Bridgeville today as serious and amatuer engineers try out their huge contraptions to heave a 8-to-10 pound pumpkin as far as they can.

Event organizer Frank Shade told WDEL that there are machines from as far away as Australia and New South Wales.

The event starts at 8 a.m. and runs thorugh Sunday at the Royal Farms in Bridgeville.

Tickets for adults are $10 per person per day.

Parking is included unless you’re towing a trailor or have an oversized vehicle.
