You may know the Carve as a drive-thru. Maybe you long for when it was a walk-thru. Good news! This year, the Carve will be a HYBRID  – with both “walk-thru” and “drive-thru” viewing days.

“Walk-thru” days are Wednesday and Thursday, where you’ll find additional food and entertainment, including the popular fire-pits with storytellers and s’mores.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights are “drive-thru” only where visitors enjoy the show from the comfort of their vehicle.

Plan Your Visit

Wednesday + Thursday = Walk-thru
park your car
receive an event program (available Thurs-Sun)
stroll-along the family-friendly entertainment zone including fire-pits, storytellers, and s’mores
walk up and be wowed by 35+ massive creative pumpkins in illuminated tents

Friday, Saturday + Sunday = Drive-thru
pull up in your car 

receive an event program
drive along the family-friendly entertainment zone (weather permitting)
be wowed by 35+ massive creative pumpkins in illuminated tents
listen to live or DJ’ed music throughout the weekend (weather permitting)
Vistors must remain in their own vehicles.

Things to know!

  • The event is rain or shine
  • Walk-thru takes about an hour to walk-thru but linger at your leisure by the fire pits. Please wear comfortable / weather appropriate footwear.
  • It can take between 10-45 min wait for the drive-thru with about a leisurely 15 min drive by the pumpkins.
