The virtual world has hosted many events that otherwise wouldn't have happened this year and that goes for a number of favorite local traditions as well, including the Bay Area's sparkliest "pumpkin patch."
The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with an all-online sale.
The pumpkin patch, which features hundreds of handcrafted glass-blown pumpkins created by California glass artists, is available online any time Sept. 24-Oct. 4. Proceeds benefit the artists, the Bay Area Glass Institute and the Palo Alto Art Center Foundation.
In a special nod to the patch's silver anniversary, the event kicks off Sept. 24, 3 p.m., with a special treat for collectors and fans: a Zoom event where they can share their collections and show off their favorite glass gourds from previous years.
