October is my birthday month, so I’ve been pretty hype this whole month. I LOVE summer, but fall isn’t too shabby. Fall has the best fashion, and there are always a ton of events to explore due to various holidays. This week’s edition of Weeknight Date Night was provided by THE GLOW: A Jack O’ Lantern Experience, and we were able to experience the coolest adventure.
Let me give yall a little insight on THE GLOW. It’s an enchanting and unforgettable wonderland of more than 5,000 HAND CARVED, illuminated pumpkins transformed into beautiful landscapes, iconic figures and larger than life structures. Jack’s Lane is a cute trail that’s one-third of a mile. Don’t worry, this is family/kid friendly. The pumpkins are intricately carved, but none of them will frighten the little ones. This adventure is definitely G rated, and packed with fun.
Anthony and I arrived at The Fontanel and headed to the customer service desk to grab our passes. Tickets are purchased in advanced and sold in 30 minute intervals. After we grabbed our passes we headed to the bar to grab drinks. Yes, ladies and gentlemen there were booths set up that served “adult beverages”. There were also a few food trucks. We headed through the gates and into the wonderful land that Jack built, well I guess in this case, carved.
We started the trail, and I’ll admit I didn’t know what to fully expect. We saw the cutest pumpkin patch with a ton of pumpkins illuminated. It was about 8:30pm, so it was dark and the lights were amazing. We walked a little bit and saw a carnival themed scene. There was a ferris wheel and everything associated with a carnival. We saw a crowd of people up ahead that were all huddled in the same spot. When we got there we saw exactly why everyone stopped to look and take pictures. There were pumpkins of iconic artists. The Prince pumpkin was my favorite. We saw a castle with Elsa and Anna pumpkins in the window. Towards the end of the trail was a huge white pumpkin with smaller white pumpkins surrounding it. Then, out of nowhere snow started to come out of the big pumpkin. It was so cool! There was a pumpkin patch with pumpkins for sale at the end of trail.
We headed back to home base of THE GLOW and watched two guys carve pumpkins. It was amazing that they were able to do it so quickly and even asked kids in the audience what they should carve on the pumpkins. There were a ton of tents set up with different Halloween and pumpkin magic. Don’t worry parents there are trinkets and toys for you to purchase for the kids. Or if you’re a big kid like me you’ll want to purchase all the trinkets and toys that light up lol.
I definitely recommend visiting THE GLOW A Jack O’ Lantern Experience! This cool adventure is not just in Nashville, but it’s also in a few other cities. I wanted to provide you with details from our time there, but I wanted to leave a little suspense and surprise for when you visit. THE GLOW will be in Nashville at The Fontanel until October 30th. Remember tickets must be purchased in advance. It’s definitely worth the price of admission. CLICK HERE to get more information about times, prices and other things associated with THE GLOW.
If you’re in Nashville, and you don’t have anyone to go with shoot me an email and we can connect.

This seems like a perfect fall date. We don’t have anything like that around here, but I wish we did. The arts was on point.
Check to see if THE GLOW is near you. It’s coming to a few cities.
I’m in Murfreesboro! I was going to take my daughter to this! We need to meet cause it’s lonely in this blogging world
I agree, let’s meet up!
This looks like a very romantic and fun date night. I like the idea of timed passes, so it is not super packed. I bet it was very initimate.
Yes, doing it in 30 minute intervals helped with over crowding.
This looks like such a fun date night! I was always so bad at pumpkin carving when I was young, I’d love to see if I’m better now.
We did a pumpkin carving date last year and I sucked lol
Nashville has the perfect weather right now for something like this. My husband and I are planning a trip to Tennessee. We spent Christmas in Asheville last year. It was beautiful.
You’re gonna love Nashville ❤
This is a great date idea. Not too hard to replicate the concept. Glad you had fun.
Thanks for reading ❤
How fun!!! This is a great idea for a date night…something that I know my husband and I would enjoy! But we would probably go twice to take the little ones too!
Yeah there’s definitely enough going on to go twice
I’m gonna try to make it out this week to catch it before it’s gone. This will be our first time out to Fontanel. My son would really love this!
Yes, please do! You’ll both have a great time.
I can’t remember the last time my husband and I went on a date. Looks so cool!
We do a date weekly
I also love this time of the year. The carvers are true artist. I love seeing the carved pumpkins this time of the year.
Yes, they are true artists. I was amazed!
I love this! They really did a great job with the pumpkins!
They really did! Thanks for reading.
This is a cute date night idea. I need to get out there and start dating again so I can enjoy things like this.
Thanks for reading
This looks like so much fun, I have not been to anything pumpkin related in several years. Looks like an awesome time. I always enjoy hearing about your date nights.
I’m amazed by what they did with the pumpkins lol
This sounds like a fun experience. I’ve never been to a jack-o-lantern display. Thanks for sharing your story.
