Hobson Freedom Park will be filled with the flickering glow of 2,000 pumpkins! Enjoy a night walk in search of funny faces, cute animals and scary creatures at this family-friendly event. We’ll also have an ADA trail and yummy treats for sale. A local food vendor will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs, kettle corn, cider and other drinks.

Kids can trunk-or-treat, so wear your favorite costume. No costume? Check out our blacklight area for glow-in-the-dark fun! There will be loads of photo ops. Don’t miss this spook-tacular event!


Light the Night Pumpkin Hike 2020

Due to recent changes in the Covid status of Greene County, it is with a heavy heart to announce we are postponing our upcoming Light the Night Pumpkin Hike (will be back in 2021)


In preparation for our annual Pumpkin Glow, Greene County Parks & Trails needs your skill and creativity to paint and design pumpkin art templates on Monday, October 21 at Hobson Freedom Park in Fairborn. Call 937-562-6440 to volunteer your talent!

Our next step will be a fun day of pumpkin carving for everyone on Wednesday and Thursday, October 23-24 starting at 8am. The community is invited to join various art groups and professionals to carve and paint 2,000 pumpkins in styles ranging from normal jack-o-lanterns to more intricate and detailed pieces of art.
