The Pumpkins After Dark Drive-Thru Event is Happening all Halloween Season

Please note that we were given a Media Coverage Pass to attend this experience by Pumpkins After Dark, but that just means we get to tell you all about it and you get a preview of what took place.

Looking for some nighttime fun during the Halloween Season? We have a great suggestion! Take a short road trip to see PUMPKINS AFTER DARK! This Drive-Thru Pumpkin Display has something for everyone! We saw pumpkins carved to look like Fairy-Tales, Famous Rock and Rollers, Frankenstein and First-Responders. These carved pumpkins portray a scene to be seen!

Check out our Reel to get a glimpse of what we experienced.

Next Level Jack-o-Lanterns

We didn't want to give it all away, but when you go, try to find all the ones in the video above. They may or may not be amongst other themed pumpkins. You really have to see it to believe it! Get set to be memorized by the detail of these pumpkins.

(Please note that the video above is from a prior year)

They take jack-o-lanterns to a whole new level and the best part is you get to learn about the displays along the way.
