Artist Peter Hazel’s World’s Largest, Giant 5-Ton Mosaic Pumpkin Sculpture
Meet the Creator at the Pumpkin Festival
This year’s Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival (October 16) 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. But, unlike other giant pumpkins, this one is made of steel, cement, and ceramic tile.
This year’s Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival will feature the latest and greatest exhibits featuring Organic, Natural, Healthy and Eco-Friendly products.
He’s the undisputed festival fave … the Prince of Pumpkin Fest!
In October of 1986, wearing a pair of orange overalls, “Farmer Mike” Valladao first stepped onto a stage at the world-famous Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival with a knife in his hand.
