Six little pumpkins

Pumpkin patch at Shoreline hosts weekend family activities

A little rain didn't bother the pumpkins at Mountain View's new pumpkin patch at Shoreline Park this week. The Aquatic Center and Lakeside Cafe at Shoreline Lake is holding the "First Annual Shoreline Pumpkin Splash," open daily through Oct. 28. Pumpkin decorating, along with coloring contests, bobbing for apples and a Halloween jump house, are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 27-28.

Pumpkin Splash will also have a Facebook "pumpkin photo" contest for the "scariest," "funniest," and most "innovative" pumpkins up until Oct. 28, with winners announced on Halloween. The prize is a $100 gift card for the Cafe or Aquatic Center.

Christina Ferrari, who runs the Café and Aquatic Center, said that once she learned that Mountain View could be without a pumpkin patch this year, she decided to make a family-friendly one in hopes of beginning a new tradition.
