Pumpkins After Dark returns to GTA with a rock band from Jack O’Lantern and more

Is that the smell of fall in the air? One of GTA’s huge fall events has announced it’s returning this year, and you can get lost in a pumpkin wonderland.

Pumpkins After Dark is an outdoor Halloween attraction taking place from 23 September to 30 October 2022 at Milton Country Heritage Park. The dazzling event features pumpkin-filled and sculpted pathways, and there will be new features this season.

Last year the event was run as a drive-thru, but this fall you can explore the glowing trails on foot. Over 6,000 hand-carved pumpkins light up the night, and you can see unique sculptures, photo ops, and more.

There will be a brand new giant pumpkin spider that you can walk under and get into the web. You’ll also find a new Haunted Ticket Booth and Carousel in the Carnival Horror Show.

Get cheered on by rock band Jack o’Lantern and look up to see some new space explorers joining in the fun. Some other displays making their debut this year include a Hawaiian luau scene featuring a fire spinner, Snow White, and Halloween classics. Eighty percent of the display content is new, so you can expect a completely different experience.

According to the organizers, this year’s show is the biggest yet and features over 50 different attractions as well as snacks and live music. Tickets are available online for $21.95 per adult and are already selling fast.

From live pumpkin demonstrations to sweet treats, this is a place to add to your fall bucket list.
