I love my glass pumpkins, so this upcoming weekend's sale strikes excitement in my wallet.
Get out your calendars for the 14th 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, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., you can wander through the patch and watch glass blowing demonstrations at various times during the day. 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 2 for viewing and glass blowing demos (10-4)
October 3-4, Saturday & Sunday 10-5, sale
Where: Palo Alto Art Center, 1313 Newell Road, Palo Alto
