Every year in October, behind the Mansfield Valley Poultry in Stowe, Vermont, is an autumn splendor: hundreds of bright orange pumpkins.
Along with the pumpkin chuckin’ competition, there is live music, a chili cook-off- a cornhole tournament and children activities.
From Stowe, follow VT Route 100 north for 1 mile and turn left onto West Hill Road to the pumpkin smorgasbord. To get to the Vermont Pumpkin Chuckin’ Festival, follow VT Route 108 north from Stowe for 1.7 miles. Turn right onto Cape Cod Road and the Stoweflake Mountain Resort is on the left.
