We can appreciate the summer sun, but our hearts belong to the fall and as we near the end of July, it’s really the only thing on our minds. From pumpkin spice lattes to costumes and Kettle Corn, the spooky season could not come faster so we’re planning ahead. The first thing on our hit-list? Pumpkins After Dark, which is hitting Edmonton and Calgary this year!

Featuring over 6,000 hand-carved pumpkins, sweet treats and awe-inspiring demonstrations, this one-of-a-kind event will light up the night ahead of Ol’ Hallows Eve.

Much like Calgary’s Zoo Lights, Zoominescence in Edmonton, or any corn maze you’ve ever been to, each walkthrough will take approximately 45 to 60 minutes depending on how long it’ll take you to take photos and revisit your faves.

To check out one of Canada’s largest outdoor Halloween events, you can visit their website below.

Timed tickets are available now and for a limited time only (with code EARLYBIRD) will only cost you $19.75 per person – so get on it, folks!
