From 4-6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1,the first annual Pumpkin Smash was held in the municipal parking lot by the City of Hayward Fire Department near Dakota Avenue. The event was organized by Dalton Hessel who said he first participated in a pumpkin smash while attending the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2014. The idea of the event is to have fun with all those Halloween pumpkins. The pulverized pumpkin remain were taken to Wilderness Walk for consumption by some of the the zoo animals and the remainder went into a compost pile.
