halloween jack-o-lantern journey at franklin park zoo photoJack O’ Lantern Journey! Open from October through early November, more than 5,000 hand-carved glowing jack o’ lanterns will light up the night over the span of a half mile trail at this seasonal attraction.

The family friendly event, taking place Thursdays through Sundays after dusk, will feature live pumpkin carving demonstrations, a pumpkin patch, fall food and beverage, and other fun interactive experiences.

The pumpkins will be displayed in different themed scenes, featuring something for everyone: glowing dinosaurs, fanciful princess castles, animal scenes and much more.

Return to the age of dinosaurs at Prehistoric Park, featuring jack o’ lantern dinosaurs standing up to 16-feet tall. Head below water with the Under the Sea display featuring an 8-foot high Megalodon shark and his ocean of prey.

Little princes and princesses will love the Princess Castle filled with beloved characters and an imaginative pumpkin Carnival. Offering “spooktacular” fun, the Pumpkin Graveyard will feature black cats, bats, ghosts and more creatures lurking behind creatively designed gravestones.

Lastly, in recognition of the Zoo’s mission and conservation, beautiful pumpkin displays of endangered species will remind guests of our shared responsibility in ensuring the planet remains healthy and thriving for generations to come.

After exploring the Jack O’ Lantern trail, guests are invited to watch live pumpkin carving demonstrations, enjoy seasonal food and beverages, partake in photo opportunities with larger-than-life jack o’ lanterns and more. The eyes and senses are in for an interactive experience that won't soon be forgotten.

Jack O’ Lantern Journey runs from October 5 to November 4, 2018, beginning at dusk.
