Jack O'Lantern Spectacular

Light up this spooky holiday with a fun festival featuring thousands of professionally-carved pumpkins!


  • The must-see event of the Halloween season featuring 5,000 artistically carved pumpkins. This year's theme is "Changing the Channel: A Timeline of Television History," featuring shows from the 1950’s Golden Age of Television to what we stream today on our devices, and everything in between. Guests can weave their way through the woods, filled with familiar faces and scenes from the small screen, set to the iconic theme songs we’ve come to know and love. Attendees should be prepared to relive decades of TV history from Batman to Breaking Bad, the moon landing to MTV, and Get Smart to the Sopranos.


  • Held at Iroquois Park, which was designed by Central Park’s landscape architect, Frederick Olmsted.


  • September 30 - October 31, 2021 - The event will be open from 7:30-11 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.


  • See jaw dropping displays of jack o'lanterns that have been transformed into works of art in a tranquil wooded setting in the fall. You can theme your entire trip around our fantastic fall foliage and spook things up with fun Halloween surprises at each stop along the way.
