THE JACK-O-LANTERN SPECTACULAR PROVES ONCE AGAIN THAT IT IS THE PLACE TO BE EACH OCTOBER!

Another Halloween season has come and gone and as we approach the Christmas season, it is never too late to reflect on Halloween and all of the fun that was had. Each year, Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island, presents an amazing show featuring over 5,000 carved pumpkins. Money raised for this event helps the zoo on so many levels and I am happy to report that this year’s show broke all attendance records, including the largest Halloween night ever, a night usually slow as most people are out with their kids trick-or-treating. Here I present to you a series of pics taken on the last night of the 2015 season. Enjoy!

Once Again The JACK-O-LANTERN SPECTACULAR Is Just That…SPECTACULAR!

Roger Williams Park Zoo once again hosts the JACK-O-LANTERN SPECTACULAR, an annual fundraising event put together by a company called Passion For Pumpkins. This fall tradition, despite its late start due to inclement weather (we had more rain in the 3 days leading up to the show than we did all spring and summer combined), is now in full swing and is not to be missed! This year’s theme is People’s Choice, taking the best skits from past shows and combining them into one mega-presentation.

Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular Part 5!

After going through the trail the final night of the show, on November 2, 2014, there were just too many great looking pumpkins left to not share. The last night of the season is actually the best night of the year to go as the crowds are low and every last pumpkin left is crammed somewhere. It is on this night that you are guaranteed to see the very best of this amazing show! This year was another great success for Roger Williams Park Zoo and can only imagine what 2015 will bring! ENJOY!
