Newfields is fall fun

INDIANAPOLIS — Harvest at Newfields, 4000 Michigan Road, is a month-long celebration of Fall and Halloween with day and nighttime events for families. The nighttime outdoor walking experience guides visitors along a path of thousands of glowing pumpkins around the twists and turns of an enchanted forest, an eerie ghost train and a grand finale at Mischief Manor on the Lilly Allee. During the day, guests are invited to explore the garden strewn with Indiana-grown pumpkins blanketing the campus and enjoy horticulture displays. Weekends will bring special activations from many of Newfields’ most beloved partners. Tickets for children through adults range from $13 to $25. Visit for more information.
