Cabarrus This Week--October 21
CTW visits an enchanting wonderland of more than 5,000 hand-carved, pumpkins at The Glow: A Jack O’Lantern Experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway. These illuminated pumpkins transform the Rock City Campgrounds into beautiful landscapes, iconic figures and larger-than-life structures.
The Glow isn’t a place to expect frights and ghouls, but you will scream with delight to see pumpkins come to life as sixteen-foot tall dinosaurs, ghostly pirate ships or your favorite superhero or princess.
This fall wonderland will astound guests young and old as you walk through thousands of expertly-carved pumpkins. Take your time as you enjoy the intricately designed pieces throughout the trail, viewing different themes along the way. These glowing gourds are the perfect backdrop for a few fall photos, so grab the family and your camera.
You can visit The Glow: A Jack O’Lantern Experience Thursday, October 25 through Sunday, October 28 from 7 – 10 p.m. The walk itself can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are sold in 30 minute intervals.
