GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) -- What is the sound that a falling pumpkin makes when it hits the ground?
The crowd cheered Friday as several hundred overripe pumpkins were dropped from a second-story balcony to burst and splatter in a moist explosion of seeds and pulp.
The largest weighed several hundred pounds.
Eleven-year-old Brian Scala said it was "really cool."
The pumpkins were donated by a local nursery and will be reused as compost.
