DES PERES, MO (KTVI) – The Des Peres Fall Festival is helping St. Louis residents enjoy the season in a unique way. This Saturday, October 15th, Des Peres Park will host the a variety of unique activities. Perhaps the most unique activity is the Pumpkin Racer. A fan favorite, this annual event requires participants to create a homemade race car out of a full-sized pumpkin and other materials. Mixing fall with friendly competition, the race is free and open to the public.

City of Des Peres Recreation Superintendent Nikki Thole along with Sports Supervisor Corey Newgent stopped by FOX 2 this morning to show us their own pumpkin racers as well as to discuss the ins and outs of the event.
