Halloween is right around the corner and many people are left wondering what events can one enjoy before the actual holiday arrives. Now students could go to a haunted house, or even enjoy a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, or visit Pumpkin Glow in Historic St. Charles for an evening. 

Pumpkin Glow is a “spook-tacular” event happening on Historic Main Street from Friday, Oct. 22 to Saturday, Oct. 23. Pumpkin Glow is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. both Friday and Saturday and is free for everyone to enjoy. The streets will be lined up with hundreds of creatively decorated pumpkins. Local shops and guests bring their one of a kind pumpkins from far and wide. Also head on over to Light Up Lanterns to hear spooky scary ghost stories. Shops will also be open late with lots of great deals to shop. 

Senior Nick Shanks says Halloween has been his favorite holiday ever since he was a little boy. Shanks had never heard of Pumpkin Glow, but after learning what the event entailed, he said he would like to experience it. 

“Yeah I would [go],” Shanks said. “It sounds fun, probably something I would go to with my family.”
