Cal Poly Pumpkin Fest #1: The Pumpkins
Yesterday we packed up the garden cart and big two handled bucket in the old man's pickup and went off east on a quest for pumpkins. The gardeners, er, Plant Scientists and Technologists that is, at Cal Poly Pomona offer up tons of pumpkins and festivities every October and been doing it for the past 19 years or so.
The festival attracts hordes of people these days. There are booths with games and crafts; there is a corn maze; there are things for sale; there are things to eat. People park their pumpkin-laden wagons outside while they go inside to eat pancake breakfast.
