its 18th anniversary, the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch® is the largest

newly renovated Palo Alto Art Center. Wander through a dazzling array of
one-of-a kind glass pumpkins and other unique glass art objects
designed to reflect nature’s brilliance in a variety

pumpkins are perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving, yet beautiful enough
to display year-round.
