This post is part of my blogtober celebration, my month-long blog party about all things creepy and Halloween-y! Don't forget I've got a ton of giveaways going on!
I was going to post a review today of a book I FLEW through, but last night (being Thursday, since I'm writing a post for Saturday on Friday. But I digress), my family and I and some friends went to a pretty new Louisville event, I think it's in its second year.
It's basically this big walk through Iriquois Park, Louisville's largest park (probably, it's huge), with 5,000 pumpkins per night, and they're all lit and illuminated, and there was music and sound effects and fog all over the place. All the pumpkins were carved by local artists, and when I say carved, I mean hella artistically decorated and scraped pumpkins.
It was insane.
So I thought I would share my experience there!
The theme was "A Walk in Time," and it started off in the prehistoric periods with some hella sweet dino pumpkins. If you know anything about me, it's my obsession with dinos. Especially triceratops and stegos. They're my favorite :) But it was too crowded right at the beginning to get any good pictures. It fanned out as we went, so I was able to get some more.
Next up was the Ice Age, and I snagged this super sweet photo of a SABOR TOOTHED TIGER. Be prepared. You're not ready for the ridiculousness that is this pumpkin.
I told you. It was insane. I loved this whole experience so much. From there we went through periods like the Viking Age (of which I got all excited because I could educate my mother about the importance of ornamentation on viking protection wear, and she promptly pushed me away so I would shut up) to the Middle Ages with Merlin, Arthur, and a sweet Robin Hood pumpkin.
Next was more America-centered, with Columbus, a Declaration, Thanksgiving, and then we finally, after a long walk, hit pop culture row, where I got some cool pictures of my favorites like this lovely lady.
She's the most underappreciated Disney character, but I'll save that for another day.
This was an awesome event, and if you're in the Louisville area for Halloween, it's still going on through next Sunday, the 2nd, and I 100% say it's worth it. Totally.
