There’s the Great Pumpkin Parade, a Haunted House, expert pumpkin carver Farmer Mike sculpting a monster 1,000+ pound pumpkin, pie-eating and costume contests, pumpkin carving for fun, tons of food and beverages, arts and crafts, live entertainment—and the list goes on. Saturday and Sunday in Half Moon Bay.
