Well, COVID-19 has caused the cancellation of some annual pumpkin attractions, but you can still enjoy these for 2020!
The long-standing tradition of Pumpkinfest is back! The 27th annual Pumpkinfest is a new twist on an old favorite: Masterfully carved pumpkins will be placed throughout the Borough of Doylestown and available for socially distanced-viewing beginning at 5 pm on October 24 and 25. Details can be found on the CB Cares Educational Foundation website.
The Amazing Pumpkin Carve is back for its sixth year - from the comfort and safety of your car! Dozens of colossal pumpkins will be carved and electrified by many of the area's most talented artists and displayed in a beautifully illuminated drive-thru. The event, presented by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, will bring spectacular art and Halloween fun to our local community.

No, it's not in our neighborhood but this one HAS to be mentioned in case you're up for the trip! Meander through an 18th-century landscape and discover a breathtaking display of more than 7,000 illuminated jack o'lanterns - all designed and hand-carved on site! Tour the Museum of Pumpkin Art, where classic paintings get the gourd treatment, see who let the (pumpkin) dogs out, listen for the Headless Horseman - and watch out for swooping jack o'lantern bats! See the Pumpkin Carousel twirl and the Pumpkin Windmill whirl and step inside the Pumpkin Planetarium for a star show like you've never seen. You'll certainly hold a torch for the 25-foot-tall jack o'lantern Statue of Liberty and get personal with Instagrammable signs of the zodiac. Complete with synchronized lighting and an original soundtrack, this one-of-a-kind event is not to be missed! All ages. To ensure the safety and enjoyment of our visitors, capacity is extremely limited. Advance ticket purchase required.
