The Pumpkin Fest will run on select dates until October 18 and tickets will be sold for specific time slots to prevent crowds.

Tickets will cost $13.95 and visitors are encouraged to pack a fall picnic for the ghostly gathering.

From haunted houses to pumpkin picking and temporary Halloween tattoos, there’s a little something for everyone at this event.

There will be a wagon ride through a mysterious forest and an on-site petting zoo so you can get up close and personal with adorable farm animals.

You can get lost in a winding corn maze, pose in front of large hay structures, and the list goes on and on.

This year, masks will be required at certain parts of the event where physical distancing is not possible, like the wagon ride.

If you’re looking for something that will really scare your socks off, then be sure to also check out Proulx Farm's Skreamers event.

For more chills and thrills, you'll want to mark your calendars for other Ottawa-area events like Fright Fest at Saunders Farm and Acres of Terror at Cannamore Orchards.
