A 40-foot long dragon. A ghostly pirate ship. An undersea wonderland. Those are just a few items in the fantastical lands, built using over 3,000 hand-carved pumpkins at Pumpkin Nights, which opened Oct. 17 at the Adams County Fairgrounds, 9755 Henderson Road in Brighton.
Pumpkin Nights was founded in 2016 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds with a mission to showcase local artists, and celebrate without the spooks and scares. Now, Pumpkin Nights runs through the month of October in four different cities across the U.S. This is the first year the event added a Denver area location.
At Pumpkin Nights attendees will venture along a half-mile walking path and explore eight different pumpkin-themed lands. Attendees can also gather at a fire show, demonstrations by professional pumpkin artists, festival fare from local food trucks, hot chocolate and apple cider.
The event runs rain or shine 5:30-10:30 p.m. nightly through Nov. 4. Tickets must be purchased ahead of time and are available at www.pumpkinnights.com/denver/.
