I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Skylands Stadium Jack O'Lantern Experience

What: Skylands Stadium Jack O'Lantern Experience

Where: 94 Championship Place
             Augusta, NJ

Who: All ages

When: Through November 1, 2020

If you are looking for something fun to do this Halloween season and you are wary of going to one of those crowded fall festivals, the Skylands Stadium Jack O'Lantern Experience is a great alternative. The entire display is a drive-thru event so you don't even have to get out of your car. 

It consists of several different themed sections made up of a mix of jack o' lantern figures, painted pumpkins, and elaborately carved pumpkins. They include a section of wild animals carved from pumpkins, a section of ghoul and ghost jack o' lanterns, a section of carvings of famous couples, and much more. There is even a section inside the stadium which includes pumpkins figures in the stands and in the skyboxes, painted pumpkin figures in the dugouts, and more. Even this section is drive-thru only as cars are led in a path around the stadium. 

The entire experience is full of bright lights, bold colors, and loud music so if you are looking for a quiet little exhibit, this is probably not for you. However, it is definitely worth seeing. Visually it's quite an array, and the level of skill on display particularly in the creation of the carved pumpkins is awesome!   Just beware in order to accommodate the crowds, cars are ushered through the exhibit at a somewhat rapid pace so you may not get to spend as much time as you might like. All in all though, it is an exciting and engrossing exhibit and definitely a great fun way to celebrate the season. 

And that's our view. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
