Fall is coming and that means three things: Haunted mazes, pumpkin spice lattes, and taking pictures with your friends at the cute local pumpkin patch. But this isn’t your ordinary fall pop-up. You can walk through a Halloween village made of 3,000 glowing pumpkins and thousands of twinkling lights at Santa Rosa this fall. The magical pumpkin city runs about a half a mile long and is made with both real and fake pumpkins.

In the spirit of all things Halloween, Pumpkin Nights is hosting the ultimate fall adventure. The magical pumpkin city will make its way to Santa Rosa from October 10 to November 3. If you’re in SoCal and have serious FOMO, don’t worry. The event is also coming to Los Angeles at the same time. Dallas, there’s one for you too!

This glow-up festival started three years ago at the Minnesota State Fair and quickly made its way to five cities in the U.S. We can see why. Who doesn’t want to walk through a half-mile long pumpkin village and explore a hidden Pirates Cove made out of pumpkins?

If you’re in the mood to celebrate all things fall and spooky, grab your friends and get ready for some fun. It’s also a super cute date spot. 

You’ll find fun carvings like a giant octopus, spooky jack-o-lanterns, and snarling venus fly traps. Just don’t feed them - they might bite.


There’s also a fire juggling show (don’t worry, they’re experts) and a screening of the Nightmare Before Christmas. Sign us up! This is one Halloween party you’ll never want to leave.

When you’re winding down for the night, warm yourself up with a delicious cup of hot cocoa and peruse fall-themed snacks from the many vendors on-site. There’s plenty to choose from.

We have to say, this is one of the most creative fall activities we’ve seen in California yet. You’ll walk away with plenty of Instagrammable memories from this fun Halloween-themed night!
