For the second year (2013 & 2016), the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular was named one of the American Bus Association's top 100 events in North America.
The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular will return to the Zoo from October 5 through November 5, 2017. See you there!
The 2016 presentation of the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular, “American Treasures,” has finally concluded. The Zoo would like to give a big THANK YOU to our 2016 guests, sponsors, staff, and, of course, our partners at Passion for Pumpkins. The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular would
not be such a success without your continued support.
Here is what some of our guests said about last year's show:
Passion for Pumpkins! You are all amazing! We can’t wait to come back every year to see what wonderful creations you have come up with.
We drove from Maryland to enjoy and celebrate our 1st year of marriage. The drive was long, the lines were long but every bit of that was worth it!
This was amazing! Great work and so much to see!
What a great spectacular! Nothing like that in Germany.
Most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Thank you. – Fascinated first-timer.
This was the most magical place I’ve ever been to cannot wait for next year’s adventure.
Favorite part of our USA road trip so far! – Lutton, Utah
