Giant inflatable pumpkin rolls through the streets of Peoria

- A giant, inflatable pumpkin rolled through the streets on Peoria on Thursday after escaping from the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts.

The 14-foot inflatable pumpkin began to roll near Grand Avenue and Peoria after breaking loose. Diego Ramirez captured the rolling pumpkin on his cell phone and posted it to YouTube.

Rain and wind in the valley on Thursday may have contributed to the pumpkin's escape.

The giant jack-o-lantern took out two street lights before coming to a stop at a nearby park. The City of Peoria says the pumpkin was deflated, and in bad shape afterwards and people were working to roll it back up.

Happy Halloween everyone.
