Great pumpkin drop at Hell’s Gate

Year ends with a 'splat'

Ken Green takes a break from operating the Hell’s Gate Air Tram to drop a 80 lb pumpkin out the window. Pumpkins made the 500 ft. drop all day Monday, which was also the last day of the season at Hell’s Gate. The pumpkin, which was 100 pounds before gutting, was grown and donated by Steven Rice of Secret Gardens in Spences Bridge. This is the fourth year for the annual pumpkin drop.
