There is a saying that in California we name housing developments and shopping malls after that which has been destroyed to make way for development. So you have The Pruneyard, The Vineyards, and so on. In San Jose, California, a faux-European shopping complex was constructed across from a typical mega-mall. Santana Row features high end restaurants, shops, and luxury car dealers rent space to park Hummers and Masaratis around the area. People do like to walk around the streets, even if they buy nothing. There is some public area where you can sit, play chess, and not have to buy anything. On Sunday, October 7, Santana Row sponsored a pear festival, " a day of festivities honoring its heritage as a thriving, 65-acre pear orchard and the sweet fruit that it produced. " It was limited to one side of the street on one of three main blocks, and there were some farmers selling produce. I saw one box of small pears and an artist selling ceramic pears. There was also music and a cooking demonstration in the central area.
