PEYTON — GIANT pumpkins are back, at least at Smith Farms.

Smith Farms is hosting Colorado's only official GPC (giant pumpkin commonwealth) event in the Colorado Springs area this year.

Activities include Giant Jumping Pillow, Farm Animals, Corn Pool, Hay Rides, Tomato Toss, and More!

Kids got to experience the thrill of the Candy Cannon as pounds of candy were shot into the air.

They also have Food Trucks from vendors including Short Stop Burgers, Cowgirl KettleCorn & Lemondate, Funky Monkey Snowballs, Graze Confections, Patty Mac's Coffee Barn, and Mel's Mobile Kitchen providing some awesome boiled peanuts!

There are old trackers and equipment and the farm turns HAUNTED from 7 PM to 10 PM.

Tune in to KOAA News5 at 10 PM with Devan Karp who will be live from the farm to get the scoop on how spooky it could get tonight.
