Did you know that Calabasas got its name from the Spanish word “Calabaza”; meaning “pumpkin”;or “gourd”? Local legend has it that in the late 1700's, explorer Juan Bautista de Anza was traveling through the area now known as Calabasas when suddenly, his wagon full of pumpkins;overturned. A few months later, the area saw its first pumpkin patch!;
