About The Incredible Naumkeag Pumpkin Show Early Hour
Our Pumpkin Show, but with on-site parking for those who have very little ones that might not want to take the shuttle, need to make it home early, or have a family member with mobility or sensory needs. The 4-5PM time slot takes advantage of our on-site parking and fewer guests for a more accessible experience, whatever the need. Please note that the path for the show is still the same during this hour and covers uneven terrain with many steps, though with better visibility during the early evening hour. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate wheelchairs or strollers.
There will be no entry past 4:30pm.
Advanced purchase of timed tickets is required. Tickets will not be sold on site. Ticket time represents your arrival window.
