By Nicole Zawidski October 14, 2018

For the second year in a row, The Glow: A Jack O'Lantern Experience has made its way to Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. It features a one-third mile stroll along a trail illuminated by 5,000 hand-carved jack o'lanterns. You can experience everything from a tribute to the 2017 Superbowl Champions, The Eagles, to dinosaurs made out of carved and stacked pumpkins. 

The Glow also features a master carver on hand to show you some tricks of the trade, a souvenir tent, and food and drink stands for family-friendly and adult libations. Don't forget to grab a pumpkin on your way out to try carving some of the inspiring images you experienced as you walked the trail. Pumpkins of various sizes are able for sale on your way out as well. Do you think you could replicate the Mona Lisa on a pumpkin? Or you would like to try your hand at a pumpkin sculpture? Whatever your tastes may be, The Glow certainly provides the inspiration. 

 Check out the Glow: A Jack O'Lantern Experiencing running Thursday- Sunday nights through October 28th at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. Tickets are available online. Don't miss out on this unique, immersive, family-friendly Halloween experience.
