Missouri’s Glowing Pumpkin Trail Is A Great Way To Celebrate Fall

Editor’s Note: Powell Gardens will not be having a glowing pumpkin trail for the 2019 fall season. Instead, guests can enjoy an Alice in Wonderland-themed Fall Fling. See the story of Alice and her friends told through hundreds of carved pumpkins. The Fall Fling runs daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through October 20, 2019.

Every autumn you’ll find volunteers hard at work to create one of the best pumpkin glows in Missouri. Powell Gardens hosts an annual event where pumpkins become the star of the show. Hundreds of pumpkins are carved and decorated for this autumn event unlike any other. Grab a sweater and come out this fall to see the best pumpkin glow in Missouri.
