Thousands of glowing pumpkins, carved by the community, will illuminate Pavilion Park on Saturday, October 25 at the Great Park Neighborhoods first-ever “Pumpkin Glow.” This new legacy event for residents and the community is also the first of its kind for Orange County. It will feature carved and sculpted pumpkins, creating an amazing, illuminated outdoor pumpkin artwork display. The event will take place one night only on Saturday, October 25 from 6-9 p.m., at Pavilion Park.
Pumpkin Glow is a unique, fun, and family-friendly event that brings the community together for a magical autumn evening. Music and refreshments will be available on the Pavilion Park Visitor Terrace, along with expert pumpkin sculptor Scott Gerber who will entertain visitors with live carving demonstrations.
Adding to the excitement of the night will be the Pumpkin Glow sculpture competition, featuring pumpkin-related art. Guests can vote for their favorite sculpture and the top three vote-getters will be awarded prizes.
People of all ages can contribute to Pumpkin Glow by showing off their carving skills at the Pavilion Park “Pumpkin Carve Off” on Friday, October 24 from 9 am to 6 pm. Two thousand pumpkins will be available for carving. The pumpkins will be placed on display during Pumpkin Glow. We will be attempting to break a Guinness World Record for the longest line of carved pumpkins, which currently stands at 1,301. So start thinking of your favorite carving ideas and let’s make history!
