Calabasas Pumpkin Festival took place at Juan Bautista de Anza Park on Oct. 19 and 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  In addition to many fun activities, there was also a teen drive at the festival in honor of Kevin Cordasco that collected gifts for kids 12 and up.

The festival had inflatable slides and a reptile and nature show for kids.  Along with live bands, a costume parade and a car show, there was also a pumpkin patch with a carving station and an area to paint pumpkins.  Many pumpkin flavored foods were available for purchase, including pumpkin salsa and pumpkin barbeque sauce.  Additionally, pumpkin pie eating, mummy wrapping and pumpkin seed-spitting contests took place several times throughout both days.

This weekend’s event had all Calabasas residents getting in the spirit for Halloween.
