A Pumpkin Celebration

October 20, 2011

Highlights: warm weather, big open venue, variety of activities for children, free parking and shuttle service.

Besides the warm summery weather, all the signs of fall were present at the Calabasas pumpkin festival.  Many pumpkin themed activities entertained all ages: pumpkin painting, bounce houses, carnival games, reptile shows, contests, large playground area, car show, and live bands.  Food options were typically fair or farmers market vendors (bbq, kettle corn, deep-fried, etc.) making it feel more like a fall harvest festival.  The pumpkin food options were pumpkin baked goods and beer, but future pumpkin festivals should include more pumpkin-inspired dishes.  Overall, it was a well-planned festival perfect for welcoming the fall season.
