It is just about that time again! The pumpkins have been growing all summer and it is time to see who will win the 43rd annual Pumpkin Weigh Off!
If you have been checking out the Bay Area or have just moved here, Half Moon Bay's Art & Pumpkin Festival is something you do not want to miss! With thousand pound pumpkins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin ale, gorgeous art pieces on display and the all famous pumpkin patches that surround the area! The Pumpkin Festival is great fun for any age!
The festival begins with the Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off on Monday, October 14 from 7-11 a.m.. Come check out these massive pumpkins and see who will take the $25,000 grand prize! The enormous pumpkin winner of 2012 broke the state record at 1,775 lbs! Can they break that record this year? Then join us for the showing of the winner in the Pumpkin Festival Parade Saturday, the 19th! The parade also features an all time San Francisco Giants fan favorite J.T. Snow!!
Walk along historic Main Street visiting booths from all around the country selling glass pumpkins, hats, puzzles, beautiful furniture and much, much more! Take a load off with some of the best clam chowder in bread bowls you have ever tasted, or, if it happens to be a warm day, try the pumpkin ice cream as a dessert and sit down to watch the Smashing Pumpkins: Battle of the Bands!
Take your kids to the Children's corner to play fun games, pumpkin pie eating contests, face painting, crafts and watch talented kids take on the stage to present their musical talents! Bring them down the end of Main Street and create wax hands that will mark your child's growth each year, or go walk in the parade with your halloween costumes!
Test your bravery in the Haunted Barn walk or enjoy art unfold before your very eyes as Farmer Mike carves some of the biggest pumpkins you have ever seen!
