The city of Manhattan Beach holds it 28th annual Pumpkin Race (yes, evidently they've been racing pumpkins for two and a half decades!) on the Pier Sunday. Families are encouraged to attend in costume and create their own crazy pumpkin race cars at the Pier's colorful Pumpkinrace Land.
Racing pumpkins can be purchased at the event while supplies last. Note that there are a few new rules and regulations for 2018.
Prizes are given in various different categories - though watching and cheering is just as much fun as winning.
Also note: from 11am to 5pm (while supplies last) merchants in downtown Manhattan Beach displaying the poster in their window, are giving out treats to trick-or-treaters in costume.
