Smashing Pumpkins for Charity

Folks were having a little Halloween fun on Thursday at VMP Manor Park on Milwaukee's southwest side where they smashed pumpkins.

This is the third year for the Halloween hijinks. Ten teams dropped pumpkins from a fourth floor balcony rying to hit the bull’s eye.

“Oh it was great, several of us got a bull’s eye, I think I got two of them,” said Arlene Farina.

“Halloween shenanigans. Our company slogan is you're never too old to play in this case you’re never too old to smash pumpkins,” said Sean Callahan of VMP.

Money from Thursday's event goes to charity; VMP's the Holy Ghost fund to benefit their pastoral care department.

And the winning team received a trophy and a pumpkin pie, not made of the smashed gourds.
