By Daily Herald report

Pumpkins will be soaring, rolling and being composted from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Mundelein Park District's annual Pumpkin Drop. The free event is at Keith Mione Community Park. 1401 N. Midlothian Road. Watch the pumpkin's launched by Mundelein High School's "Big Red" catapult, roll down the sled hill and compost to help the environment. Young and old will enjoy this unique eco-friendly and award-winning event. Age-group pumpkin rolling will also take place, as well as a "fill-the-cans-with-pumpkins" race and a lesson on composting and recycling. The pumpkins' "remains" are composted at Prairie Crossing Organic Farm in Grayslake, keeping the sustainable cycle going. Visit the park district's Facebook page or
