It is Fall break for Green Country students, and lots of kids spent the afternoon smashing pumpkins for a good cause.

Friday was the Great United Way Pumpkin Smash, a fall festival that raises money for the organization.

And of course, the big event was throwing pumpkins off the roof of the CB Richard Ellis building.

The company is hosting the event for the third year.

For $10 people could toss a pumpkin from the fourth story, and try to hit one of the targets.

There was also music, games, costumes, and food.

"A lot of kids are here, that's why we chose to do it during Fall break, to allow the families and they're having a great time in the kids zone," said Lori Bryant, with CB Richard Ellis Oklahoma.

All of the money raised goes to the United Way.
