Let’s Glow! Close out the Halloween season with lit up pumpkins!

Do you want amazingly cool photos for your Instagram? How about an elaborate Fall setting? Well, you get both when you attend The Glow: A Jack O’Lantern Experience at Hartwood Acres. And there’s definitely a lot of glow. As in 5,000 illuminated pumpkins worth of glow! (1)

We’ve all seen Christmas light displays before, but this is all about Halloween. And what better way to spend the last Halloween weekend then with tons of beautiful expertly carved lit up pumpkins! If you’ve never seen anything like this before it’s probably because it only happens in three other cities in the US! (2)

The Glowness starts when you walk the trail, which takes over 30 minutes to complete.

Each mesmerizing landscape has a different theme of colorful pumpkins, which range in size from small starlit pumpkins to under the sea creatures. You can also check out pumpkins which showcase your favorite celebrities, sports icons, and princesses. (3)

Fall food and beverages will keep you warm as you enjoy the impressive display of pumpkin glow. There’s even live demonstrations of pumpkin carving! Let’s just say that the combination of bright pumpkins in a spectacular fall display makes for a great night. (4)

This is the last weekend for the event, which ends on October 28th. Each time slot will sell out quickly! (5)
