Jack O Lantern Spectacular At RI Roger Williams' Park Zoo
Tis the season for Jack-O-Lanters! Can you imagine a place filled with over 5,000 illuminated pumpkins? We can... and we've seen it! John Reckner loves carving pumpkins more than the next guy. His Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams' Park Zoo runs from October 1st through November 1st, featuring thousands of creative and breathtaking pumpkins.
He and his team, Passion For Pumpkins, have worked around the clock for several weeks carving the intricate details on the pumpkins. They then continue their work throughout the 32 night run to keep the show fresh for visitors. Over a half million visitors have come to the spectacular over the show's 5 year span. The Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular has been selected by the U.S. Library of Congress as a national "local legacy." Check it out for yourself, from October 1st through November 1st!
