The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Park Zoo runs through October 31. What’s new this year?
The theme of this year’s show will be “A Journey Around the World.” It will include scenes from the Seven Wonders of the World (Taj Mahal, the pyramids and Sphinx, Mayan ruins, the Great Wall of China, and others) as well as representations of nations around the world, including a “European Vacation” and a trip through the Great White North complete with falling “snow”! And of course the famed centerpiece of the display, the “Laughing Tree,” will be back in all its spooky splendor. Visitors will be dazzled by hundreds of glowing jack-o-lanterns on the ground and in the branches, from tiny sugar pumpkins to gigantic gourds reaching up to 1600 pounds!
Open nightly rain or shine from 6pm to 10pm (trail closes at 11pm). Dates and times, pricing, directions and info on buffet click here.
