Police also say 10 people were arrested at the Roll, all for underage consumption.

The “Pumpkin Roll” has been a tradition among high school seniors and juniors in Chagrin Falls for more than forty years.

It involves smashing pumpkins on the street then sledding down the hill.

Grove Hill is currently closed as clean up crews remove pumpkins from the roadway.

    Look at the mess they left behind. Theymust have littered the streets with 1,000’s of pumkins that could have been put to better use.

    It’s a tradition that has been done for over fourty years. They’re not hurting anyone other than themselves and they deal with the consequences so what do is hurt? I’ll be there next year for sure. It’s just like creaming in Garrettsville on the last day of school or Senior pranks themselves. Kids will be kids.
