Saturday, Oct. 3

See a thousand jack ‘o lanterns glow with a friendly light. Walk through the woods on an October night. Kids and adults love Pumpkin D’Light. It’s a Halloween frolic without the fright.

The Erie County Conservation District hosts its annual walking tour with pumpkins carved by children and adults from 43 different organizations. Erie County Master Gardeners co-chairpersons Beth Hardy and Patty Dicks put on this event. It also includes a sound and light display by the students in Erie Central Tech’s engineering program, games and activities for children, and a pavilion filled with educational displays about those cool creepy crawlers everyone associates with Halloween: spiders.

Pumpkin D’Light is held at Headwaters Park on Saturday, Oct 3. Kids are always excited to show off their pumpkins, which are easy to find, since each group that helped to carve displays their creations in their own section of the one-mile trail. There are likely to be giant pumpkins there. In past years, some gourds have weighed as much as 450 pounds. Bring flashlights and wear appropriate footwear for the trail. This event will be held rain or shine. — Bryan Toy
