The city is holding a "pumpkin smash" on Saturday for residents to get rid of their Halloween pumpkins and maybe take out some aggression. Free cider donuts will be on hand for replenishing your energy.

It's 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mattapan Ecovation Center, 456 American Legion Highway in Mattapan. People who have no reason to smash a pumpkin can instead put their pumpkins in with their yard waste, where it will be composted for use in city parks.
