CLARENCE, NY (WKBW) Pumpkin lovers gathered at the 5th annual "Trebuchet Contest" at the Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence, where local high schoolers built and fired pumpkin catapults.

The Trebuchet at the Great Pumpkin Farm was won this afternoon by Pioneer Central School, which had the longest catapult of 354 feet and the highest 3 shot total of 1028.

Channel 7's Jason Gruenauer has much more on this flying fall fun. It was the perfect assignment for Jason. He is a graduate of Syracuse University, and his favorite color is...orange!
