Cal Poly Pomona’s Annual Pumpkin Festival is this Weekend! (10/18-10/19)

This is not in Covina but it is only a ride over the hill at Cal Poly Pomona! This will be the 5th Pumpkin Festival that I attend, I started going when my son was only a few weeks old and have made it a family tradition ever since. Its such a great event for pictures that you’ll treasure forever, I know I do. Make sure to bring your walking shoes and maybe even a wagon for you to carry the pumpkins in. It tends to be busier the later in the day you get there and parking fills quickly so try to get there early in the morning. If you go make sure you tag @CovinaResidents when you post on Instagram!

Here’s the info from their website:2009
