La Familia Pumpkin Patch is jumping, literally, with a new fangled bouncy; imagine filling up your floor with air and jump, jump, jumping. Aside from the jumpy’s, there’s also a five acre corn maze (even open at night), a free hay rides, a corn cannon and one huge bull.
There’s a lot to do and see, and, of course, there’s a wide selection of pumpkins too. It’s out on Los Osos Valley Road. You’ll see the signs and the parked cars. They’re open 9-midnight. Don’t forget to see the bull. It’s huge!
Here’s a link to La Familia’s Facebook page.

Morro Bay Fireworks as seen from Los Osos
Turn sound on for full effect
Much of the action in the area heads north of Los Osos to Cayucos for the 4th of July parade and to Morro Bay for the bike parade and fireworks.
4th of July in Los Osos and Baywood seems to be a great day to BBQ with the neighbors, head to Montana de’Oro for a hike, or get out on the bay for kayaking.
Elfin Forest gets a pretty good crowd for long distance viewing of the Morro Bay Fireworks. If you head out there, bring flashlights, wine.
All fireworks are prohibited in Los Osos
