Editor's highlight:  A visit to the Fearrington Carved Pumpkin display is a wonderful Halloween tradition!  Take a stroll at night through beautiful Fearington village and gardens, marvel at the intricately-carved pumpkins.  It's like a jack-o-lantern treasure hunt:  so much fun to discover the next jack-o-lantern along the path!  The pumpkins are on display every year around Halloween at Fearrington, and Fearrington also hosts fun Halloween activities for kids and families.
