When autumn is approaching, what reminds you most of the fall? Other than the brilliant leaves falling, pumpkins, pumpkin spice and of course, Pumpkins After Dark! Yes, Pumpkins After Dark is the perfect family outing to ring in the beautiful autumn season. From a beautiful night walk to all of the amazing pumpkins and pumpkin sculptures, this event will be a staple for your family fall fun!

What Is Pumpkins After Dark?

This family friendly event is actually a 2.5 kilometer magical pathway of pumpkin displays and sculptures. Your family will be amazed with the wonderful walk through event. From the music to the sculptures itself, you will see some amazing sounds, special effects and of course pumpkins!

This is an evening event that your family will never forget. Each magical pathway was well lit and we were delighted that there were many options for snacks. Remember to dress warmly as it is a cool autumn night. We were most comfortable in our fall jackets, hats and mittens. You may even want to wear your winter jacket as it gets closer to Halloween.

We made sure to get a trusty hot chocolate to keep us warm. It was delicious and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Your children will be excited to get started!

Each well lit path snakes to the first incredible display. The music really sets the mood. It is not too quiet so you cannot hear each exhibits theme and it is not too loud that you feel you cannot talk over the sound. It is set perfectly. Children can run freely on the path but the path is tastefully roped off to guide guests to the next fascinating exhibit. You will not have to worry about people getting lost as it is set up well.


For those who request accessibility, the land is flat with no incline. The exhibits are at level with wheel chairs and are roped off. The paths are meters long, making it easy for people with accessibilities to maneuver around families or those who are stopped to view an exhibit. You can go at your own pace, there is no time limit to stay there. Garbage bins are at level to those who need access. Lastly, there are regular staff every few meters that are there if you need anything, they are there to help.
