Bethel Pumpkin House – A Fairfield County, Connecticut Tradition

by Rob Caprilozzi

On Halloween 2015 we had the chance to visit a local Halloween attraction that always leaves a smile to those that go.


Since 1980, Bethel Pumpkin House has hosted the largest private pumpkin display that’s open to the public on Halloween. Over the last 3 decades, the number of jack-o-lanterns as grown from 50 to more than 600. Across an enchanted yard on dormant gardens, scaffolds, and rooftops these hand-carved pumpkins capture the essence of All-Hallow-Eve. Bethel Pumpkin House is only open on Halloween night from dusk ’till dawn. This event is free to the public, and quite a bunch of fun.


Below are some pictures of the event. For more information visit:
