Night of 1,000 Jack-o’-Lanterns


More than 1,000 hand-carved, real pumpkins—some as large as 150 pounds—will light up the night. Using scalpels, knives, gouges, and power tools, artists from the New York-based company Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns spend up to 15 hours sculpting a single pumpkin. The LED-lit jack-o’-lanterns will be staged along a festive, paved pathway, starting at the Esplanade. Along the way, encounter entertaining characters, watch live carvers, and view the ghostly trains in the Model Railroad Garden: Landmarks of America.
