The Pumpkin Path Walk may make Linus skip his usual pumpkin patch, with a lighted walk on the path behind the museum where the carved pumpkins will line the way. Food trucks will be available each night.

In addition, attendees can enter the museum to see the Kusama work and the other current exhibits for free. Attendees are encouraged to come in costumes if they wish and can have pictures taken on the path or with the Kusama pumpkin
