Come stroll down Jack’s Lane, a 1/3 of a mile jack o'lantern trail where you’ll experience everything from intricately detailed single pumpkin carvings to amazing scenes created by our talented artists!

THE GLOW isn't a place to expect frights and ghouls, but you will scream with delight to see pumpkins come to life as you wander into Prehistoric Park where you’ll stare up into the golden eyes of sixteen-foot tall dinosaurs or yell ARRRGG!! as you see pumpkins crash amongst the ghostly pirate ship. Your favorite movie stars, superheroes, and even some princesses come to life through the jack o’lantern magic.

Experience fall like you never have before! THE GLOW is sure to become an annual event each and every Halloween season.

THE GLOW is lighting up October like never before giving pumpkins their night in the spot light! This family-friendly event also features live carving demonstrations and fall food & beverages!
