Pumpkins impaled on university tower spires

Who placed the pumpkins at Plymouth State?

One of the strangest and most mysterious traditions at New Hampshire’s Plymouth State University made its return with two pumpkins impaled on the spires of a large clock tower.

Pumpkins have been placed on the twin spires of Rounds Tower, a large clock tower in the center of campus, every year since the 1970s, except for one year when work was being done on the structure’s roof.

The decades-long tradition is the subject of much speculation on campus, but the people behind the annual pumpkin placement — and their methods for doing so — remain shrouded in mystery.

“Just how they get up there is a well-guarded secret, and conjuring the best, if far-fetched, tale on how it happens is a favorite campus past time,” the university’s website states.
