Half Moon Bay
The Half Moon Bay Arts & Pumpkin Festival is the perfect way to transition from our second summer to cozy sweaters and PSLs. There will be wares from artists and craft makers, live music on multiple stages, pie-eating contests, a haunted barn, homemade food, pumpkin carving, and a display of all of the gigantic pumpkin champions.
Cost: Admission is free
