Calabasas Pumpkin Festival, Southern California

Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/customer/www/ on line 398

I think I’ve made it clear that rides, inflatables and other amusement related activities are totally awesome in this blog. If you disagree, I will tell you again: inflatables and rides are awesome. Now we can move on. My love of these things causes me to look for fairs that celebrate the harvest season, with themes about Halloween, apples and pumpkins. One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to go to these types of events because they have rides, inflatables and really delicious food (made from apples and pumpkins!).

One such festival is the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival, which is coming up on October 16th and 17th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. This festival, an annual tradition in Southern California events, is set up at the Juan Bautista de Anza Park on 3701 Lost Hills Road, right off of the 101 Freeway. The major focus of this festival is (what else?) pumpkins in all shapes and forms: there’s a pumpkin patch, pumpkin foods, pumpkin beer for dad, pumpkin crafts, a professional pumpkin carver and baked pumpkin goods. Is there anything better in the fall?

Also included in the price of admission are the rides and games that your kids can handle. There’s a free fun carnival zone for games and a plethora of rides for you and your kids to enjoy, from inflatable rides and obstacle courses, to a giant slide and musical swings! There are also bands playing all weekend and contests for all to participate in:

– Kid’s and Adult’s Pie Eating Contest
– Mummy Wrap Contest
– Seed Spitting Contest

Finally, if you’re a car aficionado, check out the lineup of classic cars and cars from Hollywood movies. You can bet I will be there!
