Glowing Jack-o-lanterns at Kingwood Center Gardens Pumpkin Glow

Back for a 7th year, The Great Pumpkin Glow has gotten another make-over!

Extended walking paths along the East/West and South Trail, Scarecrow Row, live music, more vendors, tons more pumpkins and gourds, and a Kid's Carnival area to make this fun-filled family event a night you will never forget!

We have been named the BEST FALL FESTIVAL in OHIO by Travel + Leisure Magazine!
