46th Annual Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

For the 46th consecutive year, Half Moon Bay is happy to announce the return of the Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival, this Saturday and Sunday.  Known as the “World Pumpkin Capital,” you are in for a festival like no other along Main Street.  As in years past, there will be display of enormous carved pumpkins (think Volkswagen-size), 4 stages of smashing entertainment for all ages, live music, homemade crafts and foods, haunted house, and giant pumpkin photos. Perhaps you could pick up a few pointers from expert pumpkin carver, Farmer Mike, who celebrates his 30th year at the festival carving pumpkins from  300-pounds to larger than 1,500-pounds each.  Also view the world’s largest mosaic pumpkin sculpture, which measures 12-feet long, 11-feet high, and weighs nearly 10,000 pounds, by artist Peter Hazel.

Throughout the festival take time to stroll through all the booths down Main Street where you will find everything pumpkin from fudge to pie available for purchase.  For the kids, stop by the “Kiddie Land,” where you can make your own pumpkin scented playdough and run, jump, and bounce in the waterballerz.  Children will also enjoy the fun zip-line and the super inflatables located in Stone Pine Center.

The festival opens Saturday and Sunday morning with a pancake breakfast at Mac Dutra Park at 7:00AM. The rest of Saturday’s events officially begin at 9:00AM. Dress in your favorite costume and head to the costume contest at 10:00AM and be sure to not miss the Great Pumpkin Parade at noon.  A crowd favorite is the pie eating contest that begins at 2:00PM for those under the age of 11 and at 2:15pm for those over the age of 12 at the Bank of America Lot.

Sunday after the pancake breakfast, take part in the Pumpkin Run/Walk on Coastside Trail. There will also be a second pie eating contest with the same time schedule as Saturday.

This year’s festival will also feature outstanding exhibits that feature Organic, Natural, Healthy, and Eco-Friendly products.  Stop by and enjoy free samples while learning first-hand how they can help you live a healthier and greener lifestyle.

If you are looking to do some home improvement projects, don’t miss the various product displays on site.

There will be plenty of food available at the food court along with entertainment and wine booths at the event.

Sports fanatics don’t have to worry about missing their favorite game this weekend.  Head to the Comcast Take 5 Lounge and enjoy your favorite game on the giant LED screen.  While there enjoy the famous Mavericks Pumpkin Harvest Ale or a selection of the other fine craft brews provided by the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.

Bring the entire family, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.  Best of all, admission is FREE. There is so much to do, plan on making a day of the event as to not miss out on something. Don’t forget to wear your favorite costume and keep an eye out for Gourdy, the mischievous event mascot.

Saturday, October 15th

9:00AM-5:00PM

Sunday, October 16th

9:00AM-5:00PM

For more information regarding this event download the FREE Pumpkin Festival mobile app. If you plan to cycle to the event, bicycle parking will be available at the Bike Works parking lot with a suggested donation of $5 per bicycle. All proceeds will go towards The Heal Project.

4 Fall Home Maintenance Tips to Prepare Your Coastside Home for El Ñino

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

Fall is officially here and now is the time to start thinking about preparing your California coastside home for the El Nino winter ahead with these fall home maintenance tips.

  1. Smoke Detectors - It is proven that smoke detectors save lives, yet so many of us forget about this life saving device. Change those batteries. Make it a routine to change the batteries in your home’s smoke detector every spring and fall.
  2. Gutter Maintenance - As we all know, rain has been scarce here in San Mateo and across the rest of California. However, with an El Ñino winter to prepare for, check and clear your gutters and downspouts of all debris.  You may need to use a plumber’s or electrician’s snake to clean out that hard to reach debris or obstructions in your downspout. Proper upkeep of your gutters and downspouts will save you money on repair costs.
  3. Roof Integrity - Fall is also the perfect time to inspect your roof’s integrity. Using a ladder inspect your roof for any missing or damaged shingles, warped flashing, and any other problems that may result in your roof leaking. Also, check for pests as they can weaken the integrity of your roof. Termites are notorious for this. Call a local pest control expert if you are not trained in spotting termites.
  4. Inspect Your Decks - If indeed we do experience an El Ñino winter here along the coast, you want your deck to be ready. A deck can be very expensive to replace. Inspect it now for any cracks, exposed metals, bubbles in the finish, and exposed nail holes.

Preparing your home for the winter ahead can save you money and headache down the road.  We may not experience the deep freezes other areas of the country have but there are still things we should do to prepare our home for winter.

If you are looking to sell your coastal home, we’d love to hear how we can help you with your real estate goals. We can also offer you a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your home to advise you what it is worth. Contact us today via email or give us a call at (650) 888-6903.

The 42nd Annual Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off will kick off October 12th in Half Moon Bay, with gourd growers from around the world gathering for the weigh-off. Organizers of the event will be awarding a $30,000 mega-prize for the pumpkin entered that breaks the world record. The current world record is 2,323 pounds set last year in Ludwigsburg, Germany, on October 12, 2014. Thousands of dollars in additional prizes will also be awarded during the weigh-off.  The winner of the event, along with the top five pumpkins will have the honor of being displayed at the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, Oct. 17-18. The Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off will take place at I.D.E.S. Grounds, located at 735 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, California. To learn more about the event visit here. 

Coastside residents who travel through El Granada in October should also be aware that you may encounter various construction spots as various projects are slated to happen.  The Surfer's Beach Project is set to begin in the coming weeks, and should be wrapped up by November or December depending on the weather. The project is intended to help prevent the erosion process that would eventually compromise Highway 1. In order to accomplish this, a rock slope will be installed along a 175 foot section of current eroding bluff. It has been estimated that since the 1959 Pillar Point Harbor outer breakwater construction nearly 65 feet of shoreline has eroded. There will also be a 400-foot section of trail created that will connect to the California Coastal Trail, and a set of stairs will be added for easier beach access.

Now is your time to buy a coastside home. Our goal is to guide you through the process from the beginning to the purchase of your new home and beyond. Contact us today via email or give us a call at (650) 888-6903.

Easy Water Conservation Tips for Your Coastside Home

by Kathy and Michael Rain - The Rain Team

It’s no secret and by now everyone has heard that California is undergoing a drought. As a coastside homeowner there are some easy things you can do to help conserve water and maybe even save you money along the way.

1. Toilets- The average household in America will use 260 gallons of water every day according to a recent report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Toilets are the biggest source of water usage in your coastside home. Many times they are a source of wasted water from leaks and inefficiency due to age. Installing a new high-efficacy, low-flow toilet has the ability to save you up to $2,000 on your water bill throughout its life.

2. Faucets- The faucets in your home account for more than 15% of indoor water use according to the EPA. If your faucets are older consider replacing them, If that is not in your budget, replacing the aerator is an inexpensive fix that will reduce water usage.

3. Shower- 17% of water use inside your household can be attributed to showering according to EPA statistics.  High-efficiency shower fixtures are very affordable and can be found at any large hardware store. Simply installing these can save you 25-60% in water usage.

4. Personal Hygiene- Do you leave the water running while you brush your teeth?  If so, it is time to break this habit. This is a quick and easy way to reduce the water usage in your home.

5. Appliances- The New Energy Star rated washers use 35-50% less water than older machines per load. If you have an older machine and are in the market to buy a new one, purchasing an Energy Star rated one would be beneficial.  Beyond your washing machine, your dishwasher is another large source of water usage in your home.  To help conserve water always use your machines with a full load.

San Mateo County offers many environmental rebates and incentives. Visit here to see if you would qualify for any while making upgrades to conserve water usage. Coastside Water District residents visit here for your residential rebate opportunities.  Montara Water and Sanitary District residents may also qualify for rebates for upgrading to water efficient appliances. Learn more by visiting here.  North Coast County Water District residents are also eligible for rebate programs and you can learn more by visiting here.

If you are looking to sell your coastal home, we’d love to hear how we can help you with your real estate goals. We can also offer you a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your home to advise you what it is worth. Contact us today via email or give us a call at (650) 888-6903.
