Pumpkin Nights at Pomona Fairplex 

PUMPKIN NIGHTS is an all new interactive Halloween experience happening at the LA Fairplex in Pomona this October 12- November 4th. Visitors will venture along a half-mile walking path, where you’ll discover the Forbidden Pumpkin City, a pirate’s cove, and more fantastical lands built using over 3,000 hand-carved pumpkins and funkins. The celebration continues with entertainment and games in Pumpkin Central, our central festival area. Costumes are welcome, see the FAQ's page for guidelines.
