Returning for a sixth year, Wagner Farm Arboretum’s spectacular Halloween-themed event “Brite Nites” showcases an elaborate display of intricately and creatively hand-carved and lighted pumpkins, a Secret Haunted Garden and the ever popular Black Cat Café. Meander through our garden path filled with breathtaking pumpkin sculptures, where you will be astounded by their complexity and originality. We promise that you will be memorized by our spectacular jack o’lantern displays. Travel above and under the ocean, past pirates and giant serpents and through the Wild West, looking out for famous people on the way. Your journey will take you through a multitude of amazing scenes that our artists have created using pumpkins. Don’t miss out on a visit to our Secret Haunted Garden, which is inhabited by ghouls, vampires, ghosts and zombies. At the end of your journey, don’t forget to stop at the Black Hat Café for seasonal refreshments like cider, hot cocoa, fabulous cupcakes or cookies. Wandering entertainers like a magician, musicians, or dancers will keep you entertained on this night the whole family will remember.
