The GLOW: A Jack O’Lantern Experience



At the first sight of the leaves changing or a crisp morning, all of Nashville starts seeing pumpkins! Lucky for us, The GLOW: A Jack O’Lantern Experience is coming to The Fontanel in Whites Creek for three weekends this fall: October 13-15, October 19-22 and October 26-29. THE GLOW is a family friendly experience with more than 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o’ lanterns. This Halloween event will be a one of a kind experience as visitors are delighted with intricately-carved pumpkins hanging from above and placed along a 1/3 mile trail. Visitors can find 16 feet tall dinosaur jack o’lanterns in Pre-Historic Park or Captain Jack and his crew on their 30-foot-long pirate ship. The next spooky destination is the pumpkin graveyard full of black cats, ghosts and gravestones. Music City will play a special role in this event as some of our famous musicians will be illuminated on pumpkins by talented carvers. Guests will also journey Under the Sea and be amazed at pumpkin sea-life. Other enchanting adventures include a Winter Wonderland and Jack Frost Lane. The Glow will mesmerize the whole family and be the highlight of the season!

Townsquare Live Events is bringing this experience to Nashville for the first time this year. Other cities include Philadelphia and Washington D.C. Tens of thousands attended GLOW 2016. You don’t want to miss this!

Children two and under are free. Tickets begin at $16 and are on sale now. Food and beverages will be available to purchase onsite. No coolers or pets are allowed at The GLOW.
