Halloween Stunt (Video)

It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s almost time for what became one of my favorite annual traditions while programming WZPL Indianapolis – Smiley’s Great Pumpkin Drop.  All guys love to make a big mess, which is what this really gave us an excuse to do – by dropping the biggest pumpkin we could get from a crane 100′ in the air.  Last year, we secured two 500lb pumpkins and filled one of them with 300lb of ketchup (courtesy of paid sponsor Red Gold). 

If you want to pull it off, start early – it’s actually hard to find giant pumpkins, and most growers want to keep the seeds for their farm.  Find a place with a lot of room for the drop, spectators, and staff willing to help with clean up.  Start working construction and equipment rental companies for a free crane.  Have fun!
