Calabasas Pumpkin Festival
Okay so maybe these hot hot temps have eclipsed any indication we had earlier this week that this is, in fact, October. But the calendar doesn't lie--and it's time to fete the great pumpkin. Today from 10 a.m .to 5 p.m head over to Juan Bautista de Anza Park (3701 Lost Hills Rd) in Calabasas for the Pumpkin Festival. Regale all things pumpkin, from pumpkin food and beer to crafts and carving.
