Pumpkins After Dark 2020 Is A Spooky Drive-Through Event Near Toronto

Who’s ready to carve out new fall adventures? If you live for all things Halloween, then Pumpkins After Dark 2020 was made for you. This year, you can expect to see the same jack-o-lantern masterpieces but with a brand new twist.

Located roughly one hour from Toronto in Milton, Ont., Pumpkins After Dark will be returning for the second year in a row.

But, this time around, it’s a drive-through experience.

Slated to run from September 18 until November 1, the 2.5-kilometre drive will feature over 150 different pumpkin sculptures for you to admire. 

In lieu of an in-person ticket booth, all tickets must be pre-purchased online and they’re already on sale through the official website. 

You can expect the event to take one to one-and-a-half hours of your time. 

Enjoying the event from your car comes with a few added benefits as well.

Not only will you be warm and cozy, but you can also tune into the event's radio station for an audio-guided tour.

If you loved the spooky sights from last year, then buckle up because there’s a whole new set of sculptures to see this year.

Ticket prices are based on the number of people in each vehicle and you can expect to pay anywhere between $39 and $89 to get in. 

But don’t worry, there’s still a chance for you to enjoy some serious savings.

According to a post on the event's Instagram, you can use a code to save 15% on tickets for Thursdays or Sundays if you buy them before midnight on Monday, August 10.

Visitors are advised to arrive no more than 15 minutes early to avoid a cluster of cars.

However, those who happen to arrive late will still have their tickets honoured. Phew!

So go ahead, start making those spooky Halloween plans with your boo (see what we did there?), because it's never too early to start thinking about fall.
