OCEANO, Calif. -

The seasonal harvest of pumpkins has come to roadside stand and local stores with a variety that should add quite a bit of color to the upcoming holiday season.

Many of the larger, orange pumpkins are traditionally used for carving.

Other pumpkins, and squash varieties, can become a tasty pie, or a nice side dish for an upcoming dinner.

Those who are growing and selling the pumpkins are expecting a very busy weekend coming up.
