It’s a gourd time for a walk in the park! The Great Pumpkin Stroll will bring hundreds of glowing jack-o-lanterns to one scenic trail this October.

All are invited to enjoy the carved pumpkin display with delicious hot drinks in hand.

“Over 300 pumpkins are carved to illuminate a wooded path for all to stroll,” says the event’s description.

Free flashlights will be available while quantities last, to help you make the most of the experience.

Once you’ve seen every pumpkin there is to see, you can sip on something warm or indulge in a treat from one of the on-site food trucks.

There will even be a contest taking place for the best carving, and if you think you have what it takes to win first place, you can drop off your jack-o-lantern at the event grounds between 9 AM and 12 PM the day of.

Admission is by cash donation, and the suggested amount is $10. All the proceeds will go to the Frank Panabaker Home and School Association and Ancaster Community Services.
