As the official last days of summer start to whittle down, it might be time to switch your focus over to Halloween.
To help with your seasonal transition, Upper Canada Village will be hosting its annual pumpkin lantern festival, starting next week.
Pumpkinferno showcases over 7,000 handcrafted pumpkins which are lit up at night along a one-kilometre path set against a 19th-century backdrop. Some are individual pumpkins and some are fused together to make some outstanding and pretty impressive art pieces.

An hour and 40-minute drive from the island of Montreal, the award-winning Pumpkinferno features a pumpkin planetarium and park, historic village and fur trading museum, vineyard, and witch exhibition to get you ready for Halloween.
There’s also, of course, pumpkin pie.
