There was another riot in America on Saturday night, and it was all about… pumpkins?

No one is quite sure how it started, but the 24th Annual Pumpkin Festival in Keene, New Hampshire turned violent and chaotic on Saturday night.

Students from Keene State College and visitors from surrounding areas - Keene is just 80 miles north of Boston - went out of their gourd, ripping up street signs, starting fires, and turning over cars.

Police shot tear gas in an attempt to disperse crowds, but many rioters attacked the police with bottles. Exact numbers are not yet in, but there were reportedly dozens of arrests.

Thanks to local reporters, you can watch some amazing footage of the chaos (below)!

Strangely, this isn't the first time the Festival has turned bad.

There were multiple injuries and 140 arrests last year after similar acts of widespread vandalism.

Police were able to squash the riot, but so far no shootings have been reported.

    Being a resident from this town I just wanted to say….. this was at Keene State College. This mayhem did not make it down to the Pumpkin Fest. Everyone downtown was safe as the local Police department and other state authorities made sure that these nit wits did not go very far from where the issue was.

    There is also a Pumpkin Festival in Half Moon Bay a very nice place south of San Francisco but the traffic is terrible - add another hour or take an alternate route.
