This year we will travel through time and visit with dinosaurs, explore the ice age, and peek into the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Rome. As guests wander the Wetlands trail they will discover the history of the Middle Ages and the New World, and amaze at inventions like cars, planes, space travel, and the computer all on 5,000 intricately carved pumpkins. Infused throughout will be the art and music associated with each era.
