Morrisburg Ontario — Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it is Pumpkin Inferno time at Upper Canada. Come and stroll through a hauntingly beautiful and spellbinding outdoor exhibit of now close to 6,000 hand-carved pumpkins, set against a stirring night-time backdrop just inside the gates of historic Upper Canada Village. Marvel at rejuvenated and eclectic displays of scenes from exotic places and historic ages, meet up with forest animals and sea-born creatures, see story book heroes, mythical characters, cultural icons and more all carved from pumpkins!
This mesmerizing installation of artist-inspired, glowing pumpkins is a not-to-be-missed! See for yourself why Pumpkinferno has earned “Best New Event in Ontario” designation by Festival and Events Ontario, “Tourism Event of the Year” by the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario and “New Company of the Year” by Ottawa Tourism.

Partnering with the Upper Canada District School Board and the Catholic School Board of Eastern Ontario, Pumpkinferno is proud to present a whimsical display of over one thousand individually painted pumpkins, created by area school children between Kindergarten and Grade 8 from 22 schools in the region.
