Stroll Through A Mile-Long Trail Of Carved Pumpkins At Descanso Gardens This Fall

By Malia Wooten

Descano Garden’s new event Carved will last for five nights only!

October is right around the corner and you know what that means… HALLOWEEN IS NEAR! And what better way to celebrate than by creating new memories that the entire family can enjoy?

For the first time ever, Descanso Gardens is creating a mile-long trail lined with illuminated professionally-carved pumpkins to “ooo” and “ahh” over. From October 23 to October 27, expect to see thousands of jack-o’lanterns light up the night sky with their impeccable hand-carved designs! Be sure to keep an eye out for around 75 festive gourds that will weigh in at a hefty 100-plus pounds.

Thought the event doesn’t kick off until the end of October, excited Halloween-ers can head over to the garden’s Van de Kamp Hall a week prior to catch some of the stars of the show being carved. Who knows, maybe you can pick up some tips and tricks from some of the artists so that you can go full-on Picasso on your own pumpkin at home!

Tickets go on sale to the general public on October 1 and will cost about $30 per person.
