One-ton champion gourd to preside over Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival

The Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival begins tomorrow, but first came the annual Pumpkin Weigh-Off, won earlier this week by Leonard Urena of Napa. His entry weighed-in at more than a ton – 2,175 pounds. As impressive as that is, it did not exceed the world record – 2,624 pounds set in 2016. With the win Urena claimed a cash prize of $15,225.

    I actually saw the Great Pumpkin Rising!
    Many years ago at a Halloween School Fair in the evening, I happened to look to the east and saw the Moon rise. It was low over the horizon (East Bay Hills) and was big and orange. It MUST have been the Great Pumpkin!
