The tradition rolls on: Chagrin Falls holds annual ‘Pumpkin Roll’

CHAGRIN FALLS, OH - The tradition keeps rolling along in Chagrin Falls.

Monday night - and yes, they waited until after the Indians' win in Game 1 of the World Series - hundreds of teens took to the Main Street hill for the annual Pumpkin Roll.

The pumpkin roll starts with - what  else? - rolling hundreds of pumpkins down the steep hill. As they break up, they provide an orange, gooey mess that's just perfect for sliding on. The event draws as many spectators as participants, and everyone agrees it's a great time!

For the record, the students raise about $4,000 each year - the money goes  toward the massive pumpkin clean-up effort that takes place the next morning!
