More than 5,000 jack o’lanterns with hand-carved designs illuminate a trail at Descanso Gardens. Visitors walk a 1/3-mile loop over the course of 45–60 minutes as music and lighting effects create a Halloween atmosphere.

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. Alongside mountains of pumpkins, the show also spotlights a few gourds standing around 3 feet tall.

Those images are arranged according to theme along the trail, leading guests past groupings of pumpkins carved with everything from characters on The Big Bang Theory to Tim Burton creations, all accompanied by corresponding songs. 200 hanging lanterns, 75 floodlights, and a few fireflies just hanging around illuminate the 1/3-mile path, and on select nights, guests can see live carving demonstrations with artists featured on Food Network and the Travel Channel.

It was a great experience. I hope it's there next year so I can go again.

Fun Halloween thing to do! I recommend not wearing sandals, it's a dirt and stone path.
