This Halloween, take your kids to the best family friendly Halloween event in the Charlotte area – the Great Pumpkin Fest at Carowinds!  

The Great Pumpkin Fest takes place on Saturdays & Sundays from September 15th to October 28th, and it will be more fun than scary.

It’s included in your admission, and you can purchase discounted Carowinds tickets through Tripster.

Here are 10 reasons why I think your family will have a blast at the Great Pumpkin Fest at Carowinds:
