My daughters are 6 and 3 and they LOVE Halloween, but finding Halloween events that won't scare them is often a challenge.

We're blessed to have the The Pumpkin Patch to visit every year in Caledonia, and the Pumpkin Fest at Lockwood Park is always a fun time for kids of all ages, but I think I just found another cool event to add to our must-do for Halloween list this year. It's called "Jack's Pumpkin Glow" and it is happening in Lisle, IL every Thursday through Sunday this October.

According to the event's website;

Jack’s Pumpkin Glow is 1/3 mile trail filled with over 5,000 hand carved jack o’ lanterns. You will experience everything from artistically detailed single pumpkin carvings to amazing, larger-than-life structures. Jack’s Pumpkin Glow is a family friendly event also featuring fall food and beverages and live demonstrations with our carvers!


Just watch this preview, and tell me that your kids won't LOVE seeing this in person!
