PUMPKIN NIGHTS Deserves to Carve Some Time in Your Schedule

Pumpkin Nights 2018 Los Angeles

October is right around the corner and Pumpkin Nights is expanding to four different cities across the U.S. What started off as a small activation at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in 2016 has now grown beyond its roots to bring its spoopy festivities to jack-o-lantern enthusiasts in Los Angeles, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Auburn, CA. See the full details for the illuminating event after the break.

With a mission to showcase local artists and celebrate the most magical time of year without the spooks and scares, this month-long celebration includes a half-mile walking path (wheelchair/stroller accessible) that features the Forbidden Pumpkin City, a pirate’s cove, and more fantastical lands built using over 3,000 hand-carved real and artificial pumpkins. Most of the pumpkins are artificial to avoid rotting, but the spectacle of the large sculptures is impressive and a sight to behold in person. On some evenings, guests may be lucky enough to see local artists carving into a giant pumpkin during the event.

Not only does Pumpkin Nights include many visual treats for the eyes with eight different pumpkin-themed lands, there will also be games, food and more entertainment for groups of friends and families alike. Additionally, there’s a Spirit of Pumpkins fire show, movie screenings, food trucks, and each city has a unique line up of vendors and entertainers that are sure to wow; the calendar on each city page will show more details as to what will be offered each night.

Here’s a preview of what to expect from Pumpkin Nights:
