August 24, 2021 1:00 P.M. | St. Lawrence Parks Commission

KINGSTON, ONTARIO — This fall, St. Lawrence Parks Commission (SLPC) is celebrating the season with double the Pumpkinferno fun, expanding its award-winning fall event to the west by adding an additional Pumpkinferno experience in Kingston. Guests now have the choice of Pumpkinfernos – either at the original home of Pumpkinferno, Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario or its new incarnation at Fort Henry in Kingston. Or… the ultimate choice of both events, made easy with introductory pricing at Fort Henry!

SLPC is excited to bring this fan-favourite, family-friendly fall event to the Kingston area. Pumpkinferno is a luminary experience for all ages, a mesmerizing installation of over 7,000 handcrafted, glowing artificial pumpkins set up along a curated self-tour path against historic backdrops. 

Both Fort Henry and Upper Canada Village will offer a unique experience and will allow guests to celebrate Halloween and the fall season in a safe, fully outdoor and family-focused environment. As guest safety remains a top priority for SLPC, staff will be relying on the cooperation of all to adhere to physical distancing and onsite guidelines.

Tickets for both events will go on sale on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, and will be available to purchase online only at www.pumpkinferno.com. Tickets are being offered exclusively online to ensure nightly attendance is kept at safe levels as well as to promote a touchless ticketing experience.
