At the Historic St. Charles Pumpkin Glow you and your family can bask in the glow of carved pumpkins throughout the historic district while the merchants along Main Street stay open late to offer scary good deals. Costumes are encouraged, but this is not a trick or treating event. The street will be illuminated with hundreds of eerily glowing pumpkins. Don't forget to visit with the Legends & Lanterns characters for chilling ghost stories and haunting encounters.
October 22 and 23 from 5 to 9 p.m. each night.
