Come to watch as Highwood attempts to win the Guiness World Record and partner with the Autism Society of Illinois to carve and light a pumpkin for each individual impacted by autism in Illinois. Other activities include trick-or-treating, food vendors, live music, hay rides, pumpkin carving, massive pumpkin displays, light up the night parade, pet costume contest, pumpkin dump and more. Fest goers will enjoy nightly electronic pumpkin wall lighting ceremonies set to music. Additionally, pumpkin seed lovers can participate in a Seed Spitting Contest. The autism-friendly event will have a sensory quiet area located at the Highwood Library.
