CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio — Editor's note: Video in the player at the top of this story was published from the 2019 pumpkin roll.
It was a messy sight with gooey pumpkin carnage everywhere.
Slimy, orange pumpkin guts covered Grove Hill in what has become a Halloween season tradition known as the Chagrin Falls pumpkin roll.
A crowd of students tossed the pumpkins down the hill overnight, before sliding through the gooey gourd guts in winter sleds.
The annual event, which initially started as a prank in 1967 with stolen pumpkins, has evolved into more of an accepted event with many being donated.
The pumpkin roll was also the focus of a 2017 documentary titled "Grove Hill: A True Story."
