NO WAY! Load up your pumpkins and your high-as-a-kite kids and get to Cornbelly's!
Smash those pumpkins to smithereens! Play some games and have some fun; here is a schedule of events. While you're there, enter to win a really ridiculously great grand prize - a Thanksgiving Point Holiday Escape! Seriously, this is a way better option than chucking them in the trash.
