LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Aug. 7, 2019) – Tickets are on sale now for what has become one of the must-see events of the Halloween season in Louisville.
Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular is returning for the seventh consecutive year to south Louisville’s Iroquois Park, where more than 5,000 artistically carved pumpkins will greet visitors from October 8 through November 3, 2019. This year for the first time, the event will feature timed ticketing on Fridays and Saturdays.
The pumpkins will illuminate a 1/3-mile trail adjacent to the Iroquois Amphitheater, and event officials estimate up to 100,000 people will visit.
This year’s theme, “The Four Seasons,” features vignettes set to music highlighting themes from literature, pop culture, history, art and cinema. Guests will experience “The Four Seasons” all in one evening, as they stroll through the year with displays featuring the trappings and holidays that make each month unique. The themed skits will showcase Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall in a way you’ve never seem them before.
The trail is open from dusk until 11 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets range from $10 to $18. Proceeds from the event benefit the Louisville Parks Foundation.
Jack O' Lantern Spectacular is produced by the Louisville Parks Foundation and the Iroquois Amphitheater in conjunction with Passion for Pumpkins, a multimedia production company with more than 30 years of experience in redefining fall by transforming any landscape into an illuminated organic gallery.
Guests who plan to attend on a Friday or Saturday night are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, as sold out nights are to be expected. Individual tickets may be purchased for specific nights at the Iroquois Amphitheater Box Office or online at www.jackolanternlouisville.com.
