We love Halloween in Utah and this year there is something new to help keep that Halloween spirit going. It’s called Pumpkin Nights, and it’s a hauntingly good time that the whole family can enjoy.
“We’re excited to bring the magic of Pumpkin Nights to Salt Lake City this year! Each of the participants who walk through the Utah State Fair Park’s gates will be transported into an immersive Halloween land,” says Chelsea Kasen, Pumpkin Nights event director. “Pumpkin Nights is the perfect Halloween experience for everyone: families, friends, and even dates!”
Last night, I attended Pumpkin Nights and it was such a great time. There are more than three-thousand pumpkins carved in many new and innovative ways. My favorite attraction was Forbidden Pumpkin City. There were jack o’ lanterns formed into a massive fire breathing dragon, along with floating pumpkin turtles that were wading through a moat, and even pumpkin koi fish.
This event is family friendly with much to do; watch a Halloween movie, dig for pumpkins, race on the Strider Riders race track, and best of all—eat a pumpkin spice churro.
