The annual event which hosts 5,000 beautifully carved and lit pumpkins was set to start Friday, October 2 and while it is a rain or shine event, the event will now open on Saturday, October 3 due to extreme weather.

For those interested in going on opening weekend, admission starts at 6 p.m. and the pumpkin trail along the Wetlands opens at dusk. There is a cap on admission at 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. depending on the night so don't wait until late to get in! There are also deals for Park Members and Value Nights!
