Cambridge's own Pumpkin Queen has been invited to take part in a guided Halloween tour in Milton this year to show off a variety of pumpkin sculptures. 

Occurring between September 18 to November 1, this 2.5 kilometres guided experience will show off these pumpkins from the comfort of your car. 

Kara Klypycz spoke with 570 News and explained she wondered how the event was going to happen during the "doom and gloom" of the COVID-19 pandemic with limited social gatherings. 

"I bring kids, I bring people from other communities, and people come to see. I just didn't want to be the cause of anything that would put anyone at risk. I am always trying to think of ways to bring happiness, so I had to think of something different," said Klypycz. 

Going into its second year, this event saw over 50,000 people attend the walking exhibition. 

"It (the event) has been great, it's something different, but I am still able to do what I love to do and keep everyone safe and enjoy the holiday."  

If you would like to experience more Halloween fun, THEMUSEUM in Kitchener will be welcoming toddlers and pre-schoolers for a safe trick-or-treating event on October 30. Occurring between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., candy stations will be set up with directional signs so that everyone can have a safe and enjoyable time. 

After your candy is collected, you can join in on a streamed Halloween storytime at either 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.

If you have school-age children, you can join in on the festivities on October 31 for some trick-or-treating and a scavenger hunt.

If you are interested in attending, register ahead of time on Eventbrite.   

If you are interested in attending the event this year at Country Heritage Park in Milton, you can purchase your ticket at the Pumpkins After Dark website.
