There’s A Glowing Pumpkin Trail Coming To New Jersey And It’ll Make Your Fall Magical
Halloween is one of the most magical, mystical times of the year, attracting costumed folks with kids in tow and hastening one of the most indulgent seasons. Whether you’re excited for pumpkin patches or trick or treating, the autumnal fun of Halloween is sure to make you psyched for the end of the year. If you live in New Jersey, you’re not too far from a fantastically magical pumpkin experience – Wagner Farm Arboretum’s Brite Nights in New Jersey. Located in the ever-beautiful town of Warren, everyone should visit this glowing spectacular at least once – it’s among the best (non-scary) Halloween activities in the United States, making it great for the whole family. However, the Garden State has its own little pumpkin trail, providing plenty of family fun and it’s the best pumpkin glow in New Jersey.

New Jersey tends to get overlooked due to the behemoth of New York City that sits to the east, but the Garden State sure knows how to throw a great Halloween party! Make sure to check out events like the Halloween Family Camp-In, located in Jersey City, the Safe Howl-O-Ween in West Orange, the Chester Harvest Moon and Hay Ride and the epic Haunted Village in Clinton this holiday season.
What are the best Halloween towns in New Jersey?
This autumn, towns such as Jackson, Bordentown, Hackensack, Chester, Cape May and Asbury Park go all-in on the Halloween season. Each of these small towns, intimate as they are, offer an incredible experience from haunted house jaunts to moonlight walks through artfully designed corn mazes.
What are the best pumpkin patches in New Jersey?
There’s really nothing better than an afternoon spent in a New Jersey pumpkin patch come autumn, and spots like Conklin Farm U-Pick in Montville and Cheesequake Farms in Matawan offer up quite the experience. Indulge in a day spent at Alstede Farms, perhaps Sony Hill Farms or even the R and J Farm Cornmaze and Hayride in Egg Harbor City for the pumpkin-studded fun the fall promises.
