Edmonton’s spooky season will be a bit more magical this year when Pumpkins After Dark comes to Borden Park! Canada’s award-winning Halloween event has expanded and we are so excited that they have chosen our city as one of the four host locations. It will be the must see event of the fall season providing plenty of fun for ghosts and ghouls of all ages!
This one-of-a-kind experience features over 6,000+ hand carved pumpkins arranged in stunning sculptures displays throughout the park. It is an outdoor, walk-through exhibit that includes specially curated lighting, music, sounds and special effects to help bring each gourd-filled work of art to life. Expect to see classic Halloween characters, dragons, dinosaurs, movie and pop culture icons and more, all proudly carved by Canadian Artists!
This family friendly venue will have something to surprise and delight visitors both young and old. Beyond the sculptures, the event will also feature live pumpkin carving demonstrations, fall treats & sweets, interactive Halloween characters, Instagram worthy photo ops, and food trucks. Plus don’t forget to pick out and buy your own pumpkin on the way out to carve your own spectacular Jack-O-Lantern at home!
