The Great Pumpkin Parade: It's the ultimate old-fashioned small town parade down Main Street for Half Moon Bay's Art & Pumpkin Festival, celebrating everything pumpkin and the Half Moon Bay community at its best.
Saturday's parade for the 43rd Annual Art & Pumpkin Festival had all-time San Francisco Giants fan fave J.T. Snow serve as honorary Grand Marshal. Also featured was artist Peter Hazel's massive mosaic sculpture that measures 7-feet high, 12-feet wide, and weighs close to 7,000 pounds as well as Gary Miller's record breaking 1,985-pound gourd.
Farmer John and his biggest Coastside pumpkin were pulled down the street by his grandson on a pint-sized John Deere tractor. Half Moon Bay mayor Rick Kowalczyk, Councilmember Allan Alifano, the Ballet Folklorico dance troupe, Gymtowne gymnasts, Boys & Girls Club with the HMB Surf Club, Cougars cheerleaders, Cunha band, Coastside Mother's Club, Coastal Rep, and more followed.
