Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas is about to open up an Autumn-themed experience to the public unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before, and it’s called Pumpkin Nights!
“Pumpkin Nights is not your usual Halloween festival. We’re a fall festival and so much more than that,” Marielle Croudo, product manager and experience designer for Pumpkin Nights, told WFAA. “Guests actually get to embark on a quest, and they walk through seven magical pumpkin lands that are all illuminated.”
Pumpkin Nights will be hosted by Howell Farms in Arlington and will feature over 3000 uniquely hand-carved pumpkins for people to enjoy as they journey down a magical trail.
It won’t be the regular pumpkin patch, haunted house or corn maze everybody is used to. This will be specifically designed to showcase the true spirit of Halloween in a new way.
Starting with guests walking through the Pumpkin Passage, a tunnel of 600 jack-o-lanterns on display lighting the night. Afterward, you’ll begin a quest that involves finding buried treasures defended by pumpkin pirates and a 40-foot dragon made 100% of pumpkins.
There’s a whole lot more but after the quest, you’ll be invited to watch an outdoor movie and fire show that’s served with food and drinks. They are calling it the “ultimate family date night.”
“There’s little surprises and delights here and there, everywhere,” Croudo told the local news station.
The event begins on Sunday, October 10th and ends November 3rd. If you’re interested in knowing more about purchasing tickets you can go to PumpkinNights.com/dallas. Adult tickets are $20, seniors tickets are $18 and kids age 4-12 are $16 (children under 3 get in free).
