Returning to New York and Los Angeles and debuting in New Jersey and Boston is the iconic, family-friendly Halloween event, RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns. The event displays thousands of hand-carved illuminated jack o’lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path and set to a musical score designed to bring out the Halloween spirit.
“We just want to see how far we can take pumpkins, see what we can do with them, how much we can expand and grow our company,” explained event producer Collen Leonard. “We change every single year with what we’re carving and what we build.”
It takes over 50 artists to carve the 5,000 pumpkins that are on display and those pumpkins include “art pumpkins,” pumpkin structures and your classic jack-o’-lantern. Check out stunning images from the event.
