Once a year, the city of Half Moon Bay with the help of multiple sponsors, organizes the Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival. This festival offers a variety of exciting activities for all ages. The event has plenty of delicious food and drinks stands that are run by helpful, jolly employees. This festival also exhibits a ton of amazing artwork and merchandise. To top it all off, the event features multiple stages with free musical performances by talented musicians such as Victoria Georgs, Jim Stevens and the Featprints. This festival is filled with activities, great food, pumpkins, and contagious smiles. A costume contest was held for participants with the most spooktacular costumes, as seen by the group dressed as the Sanderson Sisters from the classic Halloween film Hocus Pocus.
