Strathcona County has found out what to do with its leftover pumpkins. 

The county is inviting people to take part in their 'Great Pumpkin Drop' this Saturday at Fire Station 6. 

They will be dropping pumpkins from the fourth floor of their hose tower--anyone interested in dropping a pumpkin themselves can do so if they bring a donation for the muscular dystrophy fundraiser that they are putting on. 

Those who prefer to steer clear of pumpkin smashing can still come down to donate, enjoy some snacks, and get an up-close look at the firetrucks. 

The destroyed pumpkins will be put to good use, as their remains will be donated to local animal rescues and farms. 

Strathcona County firefighters and paramedics have raised over $250,000 for people with neuromuscular disorders since 1983.
