Checking out the Pumpkin Fest

What else is better than stuffing yourself silly full of pumpkin pies?

Seeing humongous pumpkins weighing almost a ton. They're like pumpkins on steroids.

Only in America, where the pumpkins are overweight too!

This weekend we checked out the Pumpkin Festival at Half Moon Bay, about 20 minutes away from San Francisco without traffic. It's quite a gem in a mostly urban Peninsula as it is the only part where farms exist. And monstrous pumpkins like the one pictured above.

The festival was great. It featured artists throughout West Coast selling their crafts and wares. From glass blown pumpkins to fine handcrafted woodwork, this festival had it all.

Artsy glasswork

Exquisite woodwork

Go Giants!

Whatever these things are, but they look good though.

Tie-dye cloth

And of course, pumpkins of different shapes, colors, and sizes...

It was nice to get out of the city and into the Coastside. Although it was hot and muggy, it wasn't foggy. Hot and foggy (yes, it happens) sucks because of the humidity. We took a lot of pictures but unfortunately, we didn't bring any bikes with us :(

Halloween is coming up, YAY!
