PEORIA, Ariz. — Some wild video in Arizona showed a huge, inflatable pumpkin rolling through the streets of Peoria.

Strong winds blew the pumpkin through the street, stopping traffic.

The 25-foot-tall, 350-pound pumpkin eventually got trapped by a streetlight, but then it broke free and traveled another quarter mile before getting stuck in a business center.

Pumpkin owner Patrick Sparkes with Big AZ Promotions told KPNX-TV that it took 40 minutes to track down the giant pumpkin.

No injuries were reported, but the pumpkin needed a few repairs.
