Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival

If you are in the Half Moon Bay area October 18-19th don't miss the art and pumpkin festival.  If you don't like crowds then don't be in Half Moon Bay on t he 18th and 19th.  This is the 38th year of this large and popular event.  Although cooler, it is also a great time to visit the coast.  Cool and crisp air and blue skies, a change from the summer fog.

At the festival you will be able to see pumpkin sculptors, the weigh off of the extremely large pumpkins($20,000 in prizes), parade, crafts, pumpkin pie and many other great food booths.  Lots of art work and hand crafted items will be available to view and buy. 

There will be tons of entertainment too with lots of different Bay area musicians.  What would a festival be without a haunted house or costume party?  Well of course there will be those too with the haunted house located behind the old jail in the Johnston Barn.  $5 admission. The costume contest will be at 10:am on Saturday at the Half Moon Bay library.  The parade will follow at noon down Main Street.

Hours are 9:00 to 5:00 both days, and its free.  In addition to the festival there are plenty of pick your own pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay mazes etc to spend lots of time at. Take a drive down hwy 1 to get some great fall beach views too!

Glen, I love your blog because Half Moon Bay is really close to my heart.  I think it is one of the most beautiful City's in California.  Pelican Point is especially speical to me and to answer your question in your other blog.  It has been approximately 20 years since I was there.   I used to come over the San Mateo Bridge in my Rally Sport Camero,  with my friends and we all have many special memories of Half Moon Bay....!

I will check back for the photos.  And....Can you do a blog of Pelican Point for me someday?
