Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival

If you're local to the SoCal area and looking for something to do this weekend with your family, check out the Pumpkin Festival at Cal Poly Pomona college. 

The large festival is held this weekend only, and carries rows upon rows of pumpkins and sunflowers naturally grown by the college's agriculture club. 

All pumpkins are available to purchase, but the sunflowers are for viewing, only. And of course, photo opps.

After picking out and purchasing your pumpkin, walk over to the petting zoo and snuggle with a goat.

Feeling hungry or need a new hat? All are welcome to enjoy some delicious eats or shop the booths of local vendors. 

My only recommendations for this weekend would be to wear sunblock, drink plenty of water, and if you plan on buying several pumpkins, bring a wagon. Trust me, you'll be glad you did. 

Parking is free, and stretches for miles so be patient; be prepared to walk, and make sure to hold the hands of little ones. 

Happy Harvest!
