Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular, presented by Citizens Bank, will be back October 5 through November 5, delighting audiences of all ages.  This year we will travel through time and visit with dinosaurs, explore the ice age, and peek into the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Rome.  Wander the Feintstein Junior Scholar Wetlands Trail and will delight in the history of the Middle Ages, discover the New World, and be fascinated by major inventions like cars, planes, space travel, and the computer.  Infused throughout will be the art and music associated with each era.  Imagine our planet's history reflected on more than 5000 intricately carved pumpkins.  Mark your calendars now!
