In Spanish, a calabaza is a pumpkin (or squash) — but in Los Angeles, Calabasas is a thriving and affluent suburb nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains. The name comes from a possibly apocryphal tale that claims a Basque rancher was traveling east to Los Angeles, when he spilled his entire wagon load of pumpkins on the road. That area is now Calabasas, land of sprawling gated communities and picturesque rolling hills.
Every October, the Pumpkin Festival takes place in Calabasas, a chance to have fun with the area’s namesake gourd at Juan Bautista de Anza Park.
Calabasas is a neighborhood that loves to take pride in its history. In fact, one of the Los Angeles area’s oldest standing private residences can be found in California. If you’ve seen that home, the Leonis Adobe, it might have been on Most Haunted, a show profiling some of the spookiest buildings in the world.
Perhaps the only thing prized even more than heritage by Calabasas residents is the area’s determination and commitment to keeping their nature and wildlife in as pristine a condition as possible. This is exemplified by the city flag, which bears a red-tailed hawk in mid-air flight above a mountain.
