Has that jack-o-lantern on your front porch outlived his usefulness? Dispose of him in a unique and rather explosive way by implementing the same technology used to detonate Civil War era torpedoes!
$10 fee per pumpkin and BYOP (Bring your own pumpkin). It is free to watch, but YOU get to press the button to detonate if you bring your own! Pumpkins with minimal carving offer the best explosions, but we can work with all types.
