They’ve got these massive pumpkin sculptures made by local artists, plus pumpkin houses and a whole village inside a candy forest – and get this, it’s all created using over 30,000 real pumpkins. And if you and your date have furry friends, you can make it a double-date thing on these select pet-friendly days (October 19, 20, 22, 27, and 30).
