The Glow: Get Tickets Now!

Nashville's newest fall attraction is on the trails at Fontanel.

There’s a cool-looking new happening coming to Nashville this Halloween season — The Glow: A Jack O’Lantern Experience.

It’s taking place Oct. 12 – 29 at Fontanel. The Glow features more than 5,000 hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins transformed into landscapes, iconic figures and larger-than-life structures. They’ll be displayed along “Jack’s Trail,” a one-third mile trail where the pumpkins are on display.


The experience is little-kid friendly; there’s no spooks, frights or ghouls along the trail. Dinosaur-loving children are sure to enjoy Prehistoric Park where they can stare up into the glowing eyes of 16-foot-tall dinosaurs before encountering a pumpkin pirate ship.

Several of the carvings honor sports icons, movie stars, superheroes and more. Rumor has it, kids might stumble upon their favorite princesses on pumpkins, too.



Hours of operation are as follows:

Oct. 12 & 15 — 6:45 – 9:30 p.m.
Oct. 13 – 14 — 6:45 – 10 p.m.
Oct. 19 – 22 & 26 — 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Oct. 27 – 28 — 6:30 – 10 p.m.
Oct. 29 — 7 – 9:30 p.m.

Tickets are available in 30-minute intervals, and you need to get them in advance. Adults tickets are $22, while you (ages 3 – 12) are $16.

Fontanel is located at 4125 Whites Creek Pike, Nashville.
