There are more than 3,000 pumpkins decorating the State Fairgrounds

Take a half-mile long walk through thousands of pumpkins at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.

If you're looking to get your pumpkin and jack-o'-lantern fix, the Minnesota State Fairgrounds have been decorated with more than 3,000 of them for what's being called the "Twin Cities newest, most delightful Halloween tradition."

Pumpkin Nights, as it's called, debuted on Friday and will be open through Halloween.

It's a family-friendly event, and visitors can explore a half-mile long walking path decorated with pumpkins and other displays. According the the website, visitors will be taken through "12 worlds" of art and fun.

You can even bring your own carved pumpkin to add to the collection. If you do, Pumpkin Nights will donate $5 to Scares that Care. It's a non-profit that helps fight childhood illness, burns and breast cancer.

It's open Sundays through Thursdays 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. And Fridays and Saturdays 6:30 p.m. through Midnight. Visitors are invited to wear a costume.

Tickets cost $20 for adults. Seniors and kids 4-12 are $16. And younger kids are free.
