Pumpkin Glow: Jack-o-lantern Trail
On Friday, October 27, 2023 & Saturday, October 28, 2023 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. the Oakland Nature Preserve will be lined with glowing Jack-o-lanterns created by community members, creating an ethereal and beautiful night-time hike. Bring your trick-or-treat bucket and dress in costume to collect candy while viewing hand carved pumpkins!
This year's trail will begin at the south end of the boardwalk and then proceed along the winding Green Trail back to the ONP parking area (approx. .3 miles). Bring your flash lights and lanterns to help illuminate your path!
