The local giant pumpkin festival draws huge crowds

PEYTON — GIANT pumpkins are back, at least at Smith Farms.

Smith Farms is hosting Colorado’s only official GPC (Giant Commonwealth Pumpkin) event this year in the Colorado Springs area.

Activities include a giant bouncy pillow, farm animals, corn pool, hayride, tomato toss and more!

Children got to experience the thrill of the Candy Cannon as kilograms of candies were shot into the air.

Sweets fall from the sky

They also have food trucks from vendors including Short Stop Burgers, Cowgirl KettleCorn & Lemondate, Funky Monkey Snowballs, Graze Confections, Patty Mac’s Coffee Barn, and Mel’s Mobile Kitchen serving up some great roasted peanuts!

There are old trackers and equipment and the farm becomes HAUNTED from 7pm to 10pm.

Tune in to KOAA News5 at 10pm with Devan Karp live from the farm to find out how spooky tonight could get.
