|World Championship Punkin Chunkin has been postponed until November 2015.|
Organizers announced Oct. 3 that this year's event on the grounds across Route 1 from Dover International Speedway will be postponed until next November. The event had been planned for Oct. 24-26 at the same site as the Firefly music festival.
The amount of pre-planning, permitting and logistical detail required to hold the event in Kent County caught organizers off guard, said John Huber, president of the World Championship Punkin Chunkin Association.
The association voted earlier this year to move the event from the Wheatley farm near Bridgeville to Kent County. Since its inception in a Lewes field in 1986, the event has taken place at various Sussex locations.
