Pumpkin Nights is back.
After taking a hiatus last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors can once again meander through the pumpkin- and light-filled holiday wonder in Arlington.
The Halloween-themed experience includes a fall festival area and a half-mile walking path that guides visitors through sections such as Pirate Cove, The Forbidden City and Day of the Dead-themed Maravilla Lane.
Thousands of hand-carved real and artificial pumpkins line the route, and visitors will stroll past a 40-foot-long dragon made out of pumpkins, a ghost pirate and an undersea wonderland.
The experience also has fire dancers, live pumpkin carving by an artist, games, face painting, psychic readings and more. Food trucks and seasonal drinks are available on site.
Pumpkin Nights was founded in 2016 in Minnesota with a mission to showcase local artists and celebrate the season without the “gore and scares,” according to its website.
The annual event, which made its North Texas debut in 2019, is also open in Austin, Denver and Los Angeles, among a handful of others.
Pumpkin Nights is now open through Oct. 31 at Howell Farms, 4016 W. Division St. in Arlington. Tickets range between $14 and $23, and children 3 and under are free. Tickets must be purchased online in advance.
