THE GLOW: A Jack O'Lantern Experience Comes to Life for Three Weeks at Fontanel
Over 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins, created by master carvers, illuminate the Halloween spirit at this family-friendly event
Whites Creek, TN (September 7, 2017)…There is something for everyone who visits THE GLOW: A Jack O'Lantern Experience this fall at Fontanel in Whites Creek, Tennessee. Presented by Townsquare Live Events, THE GLOW promises a family-friendly, immersive Halloween experience. This travelling one-of-a-kind event that will travel to only three cities in 2017 opens in Nashville October 13 for three weekends October 13 – 15, October 19-22 and October 26 – 29.
With a staff of 20 pumpkin carvers, THE GLOW offers a trail with more than 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o’ lanterns. This Halloween experience will delight visitors as they are surrounded by thousands of intricately-carved pumpkins dangling from above and along the third mile walk. In the Pre-Historic Park, jack o' lantern dinosaurs stand up to 16 feet tall. Captain Jack and his band of marauders helm a 30-foot-long pirate ship, complete with skeletons and pumpkin pirates. In the pumpkin graveyard, guests will encounter black cats, ghosts and gravestones. THE GLOW also will illuminate superheroes and princesses and some of Music City’s most famous musicians, performers and movie stars.
"Townsquare is especially excited to bring this enchanting Halloween wonderland to Nashville for the first time," says Shannon Donnelly, Townsquare Live Events Vice President. "Last year’s event brought in 40,000 people when introduced in New Jersey. Nashville is a travel destination city and a great family town. Too, we will enjoy building pumpkins for so many of the celebrities that live here. We have a team of artists, carvers and producers who've been working year-round to create this magical event that we know will captivate people of all ages."
“We are very excited to partner with Townsquare Live Events to bring THE GLOW to Fontanel for Halloween,” says Bob Eckman, CEO of Fontanel. “This is a unique experience that is only being offered in Nashville, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. Our goal is to always go the extra mile to create events unlike other venues in middle Tennessee. The entire Fontanel staff is looking forward to this event that will capture the feel and spirit of Halloween.
