It’s Pumpkin Season!

fan2016960Whether you’re buying a pumpkin for carving, for roasting the seeds or just for fall decorating, living in the Bay Area gives you plenty of options for finding the perfect one. Of course, one of the most common pumpkin hunting spots is in Half Moon Bay, where you’re sure to find a prized round veggie at one of the many pumpkin farms. If you’re not afraid of crowds, and have the patience of a saint, attending the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival might be the most memorable pumpkin picking outing you’ll ever have. This year’s event is held on October 15th and 16th from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and best of all, it’s free! You can find out more information here.

Once you’ve acquired the perfect pumpkin and you’re ready to decorate it, let your imagination fly. You could have your charge use finger paints, grab some spray paint and a stencil, use paper cutout props or take the old fashioned approach of carving it freestyle.

Whatever you decide to do, have fun doing it. Don’t rush the process and make some lasting memories this fall season!
