Community Fun – 2016 Manhattan Beach Pumpkin Race

By Keith Kyle

One of the great features of life in Manhattan Beach is the small town feel.   Manhattan Beach is a true community and never is this more apparent than around the holidays.  Now that our many summer events are over it’s time to get into fall holiday mode and an upcoming event that’s always a great time is the Manhattan Beach pumpkin race.

What is a pumpkin race you might ask?

It’s exactly what it sounds like with teams building a racecar out of their pumpkin with the equipment provided in the pumpkin race kit.  Teams design their pumpkin race cars and then race down pier avenue.  This event happens on October 23rd from 12-5 pm at the Manhattan Beach pier and pier avenue.  To sign up visit the Manhattan Beach Pumpkin Race website.
