Haunted Barn

Ahoy, Matey! There be PIRATES haunting Half Moon Bay! Aaargh. We're in the Johnston Haunted Barn, aye. Not alive. Not dead. We're among the undead, sez I. It was the late 19th century when we seized the barn from that landlubber Johnston. Sure, we were in need of a place to hide out and store our treasure. There is much to be seen, ye scalawags!

World's Biggest Pumpkin Sculpture

This year’s Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival (October 18-19) and Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off (October 13) will feature the biggest, heaviest pumpkin sculpture the world has ever seen. Even bigger than the whoppers that will win the annual Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off. It is a mosaic sculpture that measures 11-feet high, 12-feet long, and weighs 10,000 pounds.
