Coming Up: Great Glass Pumpkin Patch in Palo Alto


It always strikes me that California glass collectors are a hopeful bunch. With the threat of earthquakes looming, these aficionados buying glass objects in spite of their fragility.

That said, this weekend marks the 13th annual Great Glass Pumpkin Patch in Palo Alto. I went several years ago and bought my own little pumpkin (which now has a sister from the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival). It’s a beautiful sight, with various colored glass pumpkins and gourds decorating the grassy patch.
Today, you can wander through the patch and watch glass blowing demonstrations at various times during the day, from 10-4. Get a 10% off coupon off your purchase by filling out a survey on this website.

The pumpkins go on sale THIS WEEKEND, from 10-5 both days. Children are welcome (though my personal recommendation is to bring a stroller to contain your child if he/she is apt to wander around and break things).

When: Friday, October 3 for viewing and glass blowing demos (10-4)
October 4-5, Saturday & Sunday 10-5, sale
Where: Palo Alto Art Center, 1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto
Cost: Free
