Pumpkin Smash! Saturday 11/5, 1-4 pm

Bring your pumpkins to Newton’s Annual Pumpkin Smash at City Hall on Saturday November 5th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Why put your pumpkin in with your yard waste when it’s much more fun to smash it?

This family friendly event takes our orange pumpkins and turns them “green.” All our smashed pumpkins will be composted by Black Earth Compost (Newton’s curbside composting partner), thus reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions and creating a valuable amendment for our soils.

You can fling, toss and smash your pumpkin in all sorts of ways, including with smashing machines made by the Newton LigerBots, the high school robotics team. 

Pre-registration is encouraged but onsite registration will be available for the Pumpkin Smash which will be held rain or shine. 

All the information above is available at
