Creative pumpkin-launching event raises money for local organizations and scholarship programs. ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals offers privately owned vacation rentals in nearby Bethany Beach.

The World Championship Punkin Chunkin Association (WCPCA) once again hosts the wildly popular World Championship Punkin Chunkin affair in Bridgeville, Delaware. The 26th annual event that “inspires creativity, ingenuity, teamwork and passion” takes place Nov. 4-6, 2011.

ResortQuest Delaware offers privately owned vacation rentals in nearby Bethany Beach—ranging from oceanfront condos to secluded single-family vacation homes. ResortQuest is the Bethany Beach real estate and Bethany Beach vacation rental leader.

The WCPCA raises money for organizations and scholarship programs that benefit the local youth and community by bringing in crowds and local, regional and national media exposure. Organizations benefiting from WCPCA include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Autism Society of Delaware® and Childhelp®.

World Championship Punkin Chunkin has gained a massive following over its near-three decade run. Its imaginative and innovative pumpkin-launching devices provide a fun avenue for participants to show off their engineering skills.

A documentary on the event has become a big hit each Thanksgiving on the The Discovery Channel® and Science Channel®. The American Bus Association named it one of North America’s top 100 festivals for 2012, as the event brings nearly 100,000 visitors to southern Delaware.

Adult tickets cost $10 per day and include parking. Children under 10 are admitted free. Visit for information on advance ticket ordering, as well as event schedule and details.
