We went to the coastal town of Half Moon Bay, just south of San Francisco to see their Pumpkin Festival. It sure was the largest pumpkin fest we've ever seen. There were several hundred craft and art vendors that went on for many blocks. Lots of food vendors and 4 entertainment stages. There was also numerous vendors giving out freebies. They had a pumpkin pie eating contest and a weighing of prize pumpkins, the winner was 1704 pounds. Finally, there was a great parade.
