Throughout the month of October, Reston’s Lake Fairfax Park will be home to 5,000 illuminated, hand-carved jack o’ lanterns artfully arranged in a harvest landscape. You’ll start your journey at Jack’s Pumpkin Glow by walking through a thicket of traditionally carved scary-faced pumpkins. As you continue walking, though, you’ll find yourself moving through differently themed areas: landscapes, animals, and more. You might even get to witness the pumpkin-carving artists at work.

Sound like fun? Just gather some friends, reserve your tickets online, and head on down to be entertained. Once you’re finished, you’ll be able to grab a drink or a bite to eat from the onsite food trucks at Lake Fairfax Park, so come prepared to make a whole evening of it. Tickets start at $16.99 and must be purchased in advance. Jack’s Pumpkin Glow is open Thursdays through Sundays, October 3-27.
