A festive Fresno weekendavatar

with one comment

I had a fantastically festive weekend in Fresno!

It started out Friday night at the Fresno Metropolitan Museum’s Green Eggs and the Met event. The event, which celebrated the opening of the Met’s exhibit, “The Art of Dr. Seuss,” featured local bands and whimsical food and drinks (hello, swedish fish and chocolate-dipped marshmallows.)

pumpkinHalloween Day began with delicious Autumn Blend coffee and continued with a visit to the Pumpkin King Pumpkin Patch. I picked out a round-ish pumpkin and carved it Saturday afternoon. I’m really proud of how our pumpkins turned out! Saturday night I handed out Pixie Sticks to cute trick-or-treaters (sorry, parents) and then checked out people’s awesome costumes in the Tower District.

And Sunday afternoon, I covered a Día de los Muertos event, which included a procession and a celebration at Arte Américas. It was my first time attending an event for this Mexican holiday, so I bought a teeny calaverita de azúcar (sugar skull.)

This was my first time celebrating Halloween and Día de los Muertos in Fresno and while I miss the crisp weather and colored leaves that traditionally signify autumn for me, I really like how this area becomes so festive for holidays!
