From Halloweentown To Land Of 90,000 Pumpkins, 4 Places You Should Visit This Fall

Check out these four places that are perfect for your Halloween getaway.

Fall is my favorite season. The beauty of the leaves falling from the trees, plants changing color that look straight out of a Bob Ross painting, and of course, Halloween, it is very difficult not to love this season. If you are anything like me, then you must be waiting for Fall just to celebrate Halloween. Even though we have to wait for 6 months in order to celebrate Halloween, that doesn't mean we cannot plan ahead. Keeping the costumes and decorations aside, let's talk about events and places you can visit during the spooky festival. In case you are looking for plans and ideas, here are 4 absolutely incredible Halloween-themed displays we have listed that might help you narrow down your list. 

1. Halloweentown



Regarded as one of the classic Halloween movies by Disney, Halloweentown is still loved by many to this day. But did you know that Halloweentown exists in real life? In St. Helens, Oregon, there is a place that gets into the spirit of Halloween every year and they celebrate it throughout October. The celebrations begin on October 1 every year and the entire town looks like a scene out of the fan-favorite movie that we all grew up watching. In fact, their dedication towards celebrating the festival is so strong that they have recreated the same giant pumpkin from the movie and you cannot tell if its the same one from the movie sets or not. Needless to say, this festival is a huge hit among the fans and now its time that you have a look at it for yourself. 

2. Autumn at the Arboretum

Dallas Arboretum


When fall is your favorite season, there is no way that you would want to miss this display at the Dallas Arboretum. The reason it is one-of-a-kind is that they put 90,000 pumpkins on display. The event details read, 'With the theme, “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” The Dallas Arboretum’s favorite fall festival features a ‘Great Pumpkin’ topiary; Linus, Sally and Franklin topiaries looking through the pumpkin patch; Snoopy and Woodstock topiaries sitting atop his dog house; Lucy giving garden advice at her booth; and a Schroeder topiary standing near his giant topiary piano. Guests can snap selfies with Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie topiaries behind the iconic brick wall, get lost with Pig Pen in the hay bale maze, and see the Peanuts Gang at their school house along with their multi-gourd decorated house for their autumn carnival. Named one of “America’s Best Pumpkin Festivals” by Fodor’s Travel, the festival features breathtaking colors of fall including 150,000 autumn flowers accented by pumpkins, gourds and squash.'

3. The Great Jack-O’-Lantern Blaze


Regarded as the biggest Halloween event in the New York area, the Jack-O'-Lantern blaze is one that you don't wanna miss. The event details reads, 'Witness a windmill go round and round (with pumpkins all around). Visit the brand-new medieval castle and listen for the who-whooo…a flock of jack o’lantern owls is standing guard! Star cross your selfie game with Instagrammable-scale signs of the zodiac. Stroll across the Pumpkin Zee Bridge, watch the Pumpkin Carousel twirl, gaze in wonder at swimming aquatic creatures and a giant Sea Serpent.
