Light Up a Pumpkin on a Pike

At the end of October, a field at Tara Firma Farms is aglow with little orange orbs—carved jack-o’-lanterns on poles. It’s part of the Pumpkins on Pikes event at the Petaluma farm. Families carve the farm’s organic pumpkins on-site and then illuminate them en masse. The event also features live music, a straw maze and other games, and food by Holistic Ag. It all happens on October 22 and 29, 2–10 p.m. Tickets are $40 (free for ages 3 and younger); paid admission includes an organic pumpkin. No outside alcohol or dogs are allowed. Purchase tickets at
