Half Moon Bay’s annual World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off is coming up next month. It’s a fun event! The pumpkins get bigger every year -and so do the crowds. When we first started coming to the Pumpkin Weigh-Off years ago, it had more of a small-town feeling. Now it’s grown into quite an event, drawing hundreds of people, including the press, and featuring live entertainment.
The Pumpkin Weigh-Off is held every October at the I.D.E.S. Grounds on Main Street in downtown Half Moon Bay, usually the week before the annual world-famous Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival (which takes place prior to Halloween). This year, the World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off will be held on Monday, October 11, 2010(Columbus Day – a federal holiday) from 7am-11am.
