Ghosts, zombies and cartoon characters did their best Green Goblin impersonation Thursday during a pumpkin drop at Trolley Square. From the top of the mall's water tower, the costumed contestants attempted to drop the pumpkin through the sunroof of a Saturn car 80 feet below. K-Bull 93 FM radio put on the contest and awarded a prize of a $6,000, three-night getaway adventure retreat for four people to the Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado to Brian Larson, who was dressed as "The Man in the Yellow Hat," the caretaker of "Curious George."
