Grab a latte and your favourite knit sweater, because Toronto's new pumpkin pop-up is officially open, and it will take you into a fall wonderland.
Pumpkinville is a brand new event taking place at Sherway Gardens from September 30 until October 31, 2022. A section of the parking lot has been transformed into a pumpkin oasis complete with activities, rides, photo ops, food, and a Halloween trail. Here's a look at what you can expect when visiting this autumn dreamland.

The area is surrounded by a tall fence, so you'll feel like you've stepped into another world separate from the city. A large pumpkin archway greets you as you step inside.
The entire space is decked out in fall decor, from the corn stalks lining the perimeter to the straw that covers the ground. Massive, larger-than-life sculptures made from pumpkins are scattered throughout the area, and you can spot things like a frog prince and owl.

There are several rides including a merry-go-round, as well as face painting and pumpkin decorating. Tons of photo ops await, from a swing inside a giant jack-o-lantern to a fall kissing booth and cute pumpkin patch.

A massive tunnel filled with skulls leads you to a candy forest and pumpkin village, where you can wander through houses covered in gourds. You can even grab some treats from spooky inhabitants, while supplies last.

If you're looking for an extra scary experience, you can enjoy the Nights of Lights walk-thru trail located right beside the pop-up. You'll be taken into a Halloween world complete with spooks and endless LED lights.
