Every October for over 50 years, the Tokeneke Pumpkin Carnival has transformed the Tokeneke Elementary School, located on Old Farm Road in Darien, into a Halloween-themed haunted house and amusement park where kids of all ages can find delicious food, unique games and activities plus a wide variety of mechanical rides. This year, the Pumpkin Carnival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date for the event will be on the following day (Oct. 14).
The 2018 Pumpkin Carnival features rides and attractions suitable for a wide variety of ages. For those seeking a thrill, make sure to try Ali Baba, the Cliffhanger and Zero Gravity. Preschoolers are sure to love the cars, trains and spin rides. In addition, the haunted house is not to be missed! The Carnival will feature a variety of new lawn games and activities plus familiar favorites like Pumpkin Plinko, the Apple Launch and the Obstacle Course. This year, School of Rock and Dance on the DL will perform during the event.
