Motivated from recent extensive studies of critical
fluctuations of dynamical events in glassy systems,
we study relaxation events to the stable state in
a simple stochastic reaction diffusion system.
We demonstrate that at the onset of a saddle node
bifurcation, the pattern exhibits the ``critical nature''
at some time starting from a spatially homogeneous state.
We also calculate the exponents characterizing the criticality
(almost) exactly. The relevance to studies of glassy
systems is briefly discussed.
