The pumpkins are coming – and they’re made of glass
There will be thousands of glass pumpkins for sale this weekend at Posh Squash, a fundraiser for Nativity School that’s open to the public. Christina Umhofer, a parent at the school and one of the event’s organizers, filled us in on the details:
“We’ll have live glassblowing demonstrations from Doug Brown and Lionel Chapital, whose art work is featured in the glass pumpkin patch. Lionel works on the torch to create witches, ghosts and goblins [as well as pumpkins]. The price of the pumpkins range from $20.00 to $500.
“We’re also featuring free popcorn, caramel apples for $2.00 each and Jett Cakes -made from scratch organic cupcakes – for $2.50. This is an event for the whole family.”
The glass pumpkin patch will be open on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and on Sunday, Sept. 26 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Admission is free. Nativity School is located on the corner of Oak Grove and Laurel in Menlo Park.
