Brite Nites 2019

 

 

 

Returning for an 8th year, Wagner Farm Arboretum's spectacular Halloween-themed event "Brite Nites" showcases an elaborate display of intricately and creatively hand-carved and lighted pumpkins. These breathtaking pumpkin sculptures have been updated with new themes, LED bulbs, and new special effects. Your outdoor journey will take you through a multitude of amazing scenes that our artists have created using pumpkins and lights. After meandering along the garden path, take a detour towards the updated "Barn of Fear"... but watch out for the zombies along the way. Try not to scream too loud as you get spooked in the barn. Don't worry if a haunted house is not your thing, because, new this year is a L'il Pumpkin Patch where your little tot can pick a l'il pumpkin and play a game. If you start to get hungry, then you know it's time to stop by the Food Pavilion where a rotating selection of Food Trucks will be selling hot meals. Sit in the Pavilion and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa or cider, also available for purchase. Don't forget to visit the "Store" where locally hand-crafted soaps, honey, candles, wooden toys and baked goods will tempt the senses. A fun night will be guaranteed by all.
