THE GLOW is 1/3 mile trail filled with over 5,000 hand carved jack o’ lanterns. You will experience everything from artistically detailed single pumpkin carvings to amazing, larger-than-life structures. THE GLOW is a family friendly event also featuring fall food and beverages and live demonstrations with our carvers! Come GLOW with us!
The walk itself can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Jack sells tickets in 30 minute intervals to ensure you can have a leisurely stroll. We will also be serving fall beverages and food so you are more than welcome to stay and hang with Jack.
No, this event is not scary, but captures the feel of fall and the spirit of Halloween.
Fall beverages and concessions… more details to be announced soon!
Many of our pumpkins are real live pumpkins and others are molded from real pumpkins and then hand carved by Jack’s super talented artists both locally and throughout the country to produce this fabulous experience. Real or molded, EVERY SINGLE ONE has been hand carved by Jack’s team.
We get many of our pumpkins from local farmers throughout the region.
Some pumpkins take two hours to carve and others take two days. Believe it or not some of the pumpkins that are created from molds take even longer to create. They are real sculptures and works of art. Jack has his assistants train all year to be able to produce the jack o’ lanterns you will see before you at THE GLOW.
Unfortunately, your furry friends have to stay home. Jack is terrified of dogs!
