Despite the smouldering heat that prefaced September, it should never be too early to get into the Halloween spirit. To help get you there, Upper Canada Village will be hosting its annual pumpkin lantern festival, starting at the end of the month.
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 art.
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 is also, of course, pumpkin pie.
Starting September 28 for select nights until October 29, you’ll get the chance to explore this pumpkin festival. Just in time for the fall, and everyone’s favourite spooky season.
Tickets range from $12 to $16, children 5 and under get in for free and a special back to school $8 price is available on Thursdays.
