RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns
From scary movies to haunted houses, Halloween entertainment often errs more toward the trick end of the holiday's trick-or-treat spectrum. RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns, however, embraces treats with its scare-free, family-friendly walking trail, which showcases more than 5,000 hand-carved and illuminated Jack O'Lanterns. Each unique piece is the work of local artists and sculptors, who spend anywhere from a few minutes to upwards of 20 hours on their designs.
Those images are arranged according to theme along the trail, leading guests past groupings of pumpkins carved with everything from larger-than-life animals to dragon a that is over 50 feet long carved from hundreds of jack-o-lanterns. Visitors can also visit the auto show and see a selection of classic cars re-imagined in gourd form, while also glancing the talented artists as they hand-paint and carve the images of TV and movie stars into giant 100 pound pumpkins at the live carving station.
