Thanks to the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Cat Country Great Pumpkin Drop had to be done a little differently this year.

Without a crowd watching we did drop a big pumpkin from 107.3 feet.

It happened this week in the parking lot of Bernie Robbins Jewelers on New Road (Route 9) in Somers Point.

Prior to going up on the ladder truck, we filled the pumpkin with 107 numbered Cat Balls. Each ball had been "won" by a Cat Country listener over the past couple of weeks.

Targets were marked on the ground, and the Cat Balls that ended up closest to the targets would win their "owners" a prize.

A big thank you to the Somers Point #1 Fire Department for giving our pumpkin (and our Jahna) a ride 107.3 feet up in the air. Thanks also to Bernie Robbins Jewelers for hosting our event in a socially distant way.

Again, sorry you couldn't be there, but here's the next best thing:
