Jack’s Pumpkin Glow is returning to Nashville on Oct. 3, offering its enchanting Halloween experience to families, couples and young adults alike. The Glow is a month-long event, located at the iconic Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage, 4580 Rachels Lane in Hermitage. Here are five things to know about the upcoming attraction.
1You will See Over 5,000 Hand Carved Jack-O-Lanterns
Jack’s Pumpkin Glow is 1/3 mile trail filled with over 5,000 hand-carved jack o’ lanterns. You will experience everything from artistically detailed single pumpkin carvings to amazing, larger-than-life structures.
2Each Pumpkin is a Work of Art That Often Takes Days to Complete
Some pumpkins take two hours to carve, and others take two days. Believe it or not, some of the pumpkins that are created from molds take even longer to create. They are real sculptures and works of art. Jack has his assistants train all year to be able to produce the jack o’ lanterns you will see before you at The Glow.
3The Wonderland Walk Will Take Some Time
The walk itself can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Jack sells tickets in 30-minute intervals to ensure you can have a leisurely stroll. They will also be serving fall beverages and food, so you are more than welcome to stay and hang with Jack.
4There’s a Sensory Friendly Night
On October 6, from 6:30 p – 7 p, The Glow hosts a sensory-friendly night. At the time of the event, the sun has gone down, but it’s not fully dark, the crowds are a little smaller, the music a little lower, and the atmosphere a little brighter.
They have also already discounted these tickets.
5Tickets Must Be Purchased in Advance
You have to plan ahead for Jack’s Pumpkin Glow. Tickets are not sold at the door, only in advance in thirty-minute increments. This year, they offer twilight tickets where your time starts just as the sun setting. Certain timeslots on Thursdays and Sundays are discounted. Find all of the ticket information here.
