HUNTINGTON BEACH...If you were driving north of Pacific Coast Highway approching 18th street, the first thing you'd notice if a large banner advertising Campbell Realty's Pumpkin Patch and if you'd had a chance to look down 18th Street you would have seen "Batman," not the comic charater, but a beautiful police horse with his rider Officer Lamboo of the Huntington Beach Horse Patrol standing in the middle of the street.

IF you had parked your vehicle and brought the kids over, they would have had a chance to see "Batman" up close and would pet him. This is Batman's first time out to an event and to see this many people up close.

The people from Campbell Realty on Pacific Coast Highway at 18th Street turned the front of their office into a pumpkin patch with 1,700 of the bright orange Halloween icons on Saturday morning, October 14th. The event opened at 9 a.m. and by that time dozens of children with parents in hand were waiting for it to begin.

Some kids came dressed as their favorite character. Bales of hay abound the site to give it the Halloween appearance.

Once inside the parking lot area children searched the pumpkin patch for just the right pumpkin to take home to carve into a funny or a scary face. The lot was fenced off so children couldn't run into the street with their pumpkin, that is if they could lift one.

Carnival games, face painting, a live auction and a raffle for prizes gave both kids and adults a chance to enjoy the holiday a little sooner. But it was an adult that had to carry one or two pumpkins to a parked vehicle some distance from the event while kids planned how they will carve and decorate them.

A grab bag booth gave adults a prize in the bag for only $20 and a chance to talk to HB Police Chief Robert Handy who was helping at the event.

All proceeds from raffle ticket sales and other sales from Saturday's event will be donated to the Huntington Beach Education Foundation by Campbell Realty.

In the end the kids found their perfect pumpkin to take home and carve for the Halloween holiday.
