SALT LAKE CITY — Pumpkin Nights is once again bringing its interactive Halloween experience back to Salt Lake City this October.

The outdoor, family-friendly Halloween walk-through runs Friday, Oct. 5, through Sunday, Nov. 4, at the Utah State Fairpark, 155 N. 1000 West.

This year participants can wander through eight immersive "pumpkin lands" including Pumpkin Pirate Cove, a tropical island where pumpkin pirates protect the pumpkin treasure; Maravilla Lane, featuring sugar skull pumpkins and a marigold altar for Frida Kahlo; Great Pumpkin Hall, which is dedicated to Harry Potter fans; and Pumpkin Passage, a tunnel with 600 hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns and a friendly greeting from “Jack-o-lynn,” a 9-foot tall pumpkin.
