Get Ready for THE GLOW, Reston’s Halloween Happening!

Pumpkin Spice is out and there’s been a chill in the air, so it can’t be too soon to talk about…Halloween!

One of the most enchanting Fall experiences in the area is THE GLOW: A Jack O’Lantern Experience at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA.

Set to open in October and run during weekends throughout the month, THE GLOW promises a family-friendly, immersive Halloween stroll along a trail illuminated by more than 5,000 hand-carved jack o’lanterns.

There will be gourd gussied musicians, movie stars, superheroes, royalty and even pumpkin politicians dangling from above and along the third mile walk.

“We have a team of more than 15 artists, carvers and producers who’ve been working year-round to create this magical event sure to captivate audiences of all ages,” said Shannon Donnelly, Vice President, THE GLOW.

In the Pre-Historic Park, jack o’ lantern dinosaurs stand up to 16 feet tall. Captain Jack and his band of marauders helm a 30-foot-long pirate ship, complete with skeletons and pumpkin pirates. In the pumpkin graveyard, guests will encounter black cats, ghosts and gravestones.  Sound spectacular?  It’s certainly a sight to see.

The GLOW family fun also includes fall food and beverage and a pumpkin patch. A live pumpkin carving demonstration will show visitors how to create their own masterpieces.

THE GLOW opens October 4th and will run every Thursday through Sunday night during the month. Times vary depending on the date. Tickets start at just $16, and are on sale now at.
