Fight Breaks Out at Pumpkin Festival!

Pumpkin Fight!

Pumpkin Fight!

My Sunday at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival started with a fight in the parking lot of ACE Hardware. A kid in a used gold-grill BMW had gold teeth to match. In fact, his gold-plated teeth were pretty cool - imprinted with stars and letters of the alphabet - but let’s just say we didn’t get along. Half Moon Bay Police arrived on bikes and Officer John Carroll broke it up.

After filing the police report, I diffused my adrenaline with Half Moon Bay’s Mavericks Pumpkin Harvest Ale. A pumpkin beer named after a surf spot. Perfect! This beer was tasty. Pretty soon I was back to my regular self. Honestly I didn’t pay much attention to the flavor because I was just trying to relax after the fight, but I’ll be sure to have one of my Master Pumpkin Brewers review it.

There was a lot to look at while enjoying my beer. My laser focus on pumpkins had caused me to forget that this was also an arts festival, so at first I was surprised to see ~80% of the stalls selling things completely unrelated to pumpkins. However, the quality of the arts and crafts was pretty impressive. And among the crafts that focused on pumpkins, glass pumpkins were a big trend. Quite a few glass blowers were selling them at the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, and I’ve been seeing them in bougie boutiques all over city, like in Hayes Valley and on Fillmore.

This Pumpkin Festival had something for everyone! Crafts and stuff to buy… live music… food, beer and wine… kid stuff… a dedicated area for watching football on a huge screen… and LOTS of pumpkin food
