6 of us drove out to Upper Canada Village to check out this year's display. AWESOME!!! There is something for every family member and the creativity and talent is out of this world. Dress very warmly as it is right on the St. Lawrence River and the nights are very chilly. What a great fun idea!

A beautiful stop on our river cruise. From the miniature train ride to the village, past the war memorial in the banks of the St. Lawrence River it was a beautiful fall ride. The village was decorated with entertaining pumpkins and the guides were passionate about the lost villages from the creation of the St. Lawrence Seaway. We took a horse drawn tour of the town then finished on foot. Must stop to see the lost village gravestones that were relocated into the wall outside the village,

WOW............Is all I can say!!!!! A must see event leading up to Halloween. I use to live 20 minutes from here as a child & they didn't have this kind of event. I was very intrigued when I saw a friend on Facebook mention they were going. I was lucky to be visiting family at the time & was able to experience this great display of pumpkins throughout the village. There were scenes from underwater, a dragon,pirates, soldiers, wildlife & so much more. They have decorative lights to guide you through the village, however having a flash light would be helpful too.

A great family event & it's on until the first weekend of November, this is a must see. My 2 year old enjoyed it & loved running around too.

Value for the dollar and driving time an hour each way - for our family this wasn't worth it.
Line ups are long and the pumpkins are all artificial. Artistry is great - but it's a 15 minute walk through with teens and $13 each.
We would have been better off buying some cool carving tools and having fun in our own yard.

6000 pumpkins carved into fantastic shapes and original scenarios. Visit at night when all is lit, runs until Halloween.
