Your new favorite fall tradition awaits. Westerville Parks and Recreation will present five nights of fall whimsy at The Great Westerville Pumpkin Glow from 6:30-10:30 p.m. October 23-27 at Heritage Park, 60 N. Cleveland Ave.
The park, home to historic Everal Barn, will transform into an autumn wonderland featuring a quarter-mile wooded trail aglow with thousands of carved pumpkins. These pumpkins will be part of larger, themed scenes along the path.
The family-friendly fun doesn't stop there; outside the trail you'll find an array of festive games, crafts, music, entertainment, food trucks and more!
All activities are included with the admission price except food truck purchases. You are also invited to bring your own carved pumpkins to display in the Community Jack-o-Lantern Garden.

Westerville Parks and Recreation is in need of volunteers for The Great Westerville Pumpkin Glow. This new event will require the help of many artists and community volunteers to bring intricate pumpkin displays to life at Heritage Park.
Individuals age 16 and up and groups are encouraged to volunteer. This work will primarily take place October 21-26. All volunteers receive free admission to the event.
