Despite it having been around for quite a few years, this was the first time I'd visited the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at The Roger Williams Park Zoo, and I loved it!

Having a 22 month old has broadened my horizons. Every weekend as we search for fun stuff to do, I always aim for activities that I know he'll love. This is one that everyone can love, no matter what age you are. The shows start at dusk, and just as darkness sets, the illumination of over 5,000 hand carved pumpkins offers a truly remarkable sight.

As you walk through the trail, you'll see movie themed pumpkins from Lord of the Rings, The Titanic and other cult classics as well as some of your  favorite musicians faces. All pumpkins are  intricately hand crafted and lit up to offer a magical ambience.

Whether you are looking for a romantic and cozy setting for a date this fall, or a place to take the kids, check out the Roger Williams Park Zoo's Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular this season.
