Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival

October 13, 2001

Overpromoted, overrated, overcrowded, overpriced and still hugely popular -- The Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. HMB is dubbed the "Pumpkin Capital of the World". The festival starts with a pumpkin weigh-off, followed by a parade. The winning pumpkin this year: 1016 lbs! The 1st prize is $5 / lb for the winner.
