Rise of the Jack-O-Lanterns offers a stunning display of professionally carved pumpkins.
Want to awaken a wealth of ideas for your family’s pumpkin carving this year? If you live in New York or California, don’t miss the Rise of the Jack-O-Lanterns exhibit.
On display along an easy 1/3-mile walk are more than 5000 professionally hand-carved and beautifully illuminated pumpkins. The creativity is of this exhibit is exceptional.
Some Jack-o-lanterns stand alone on the ground or perch on various stands, but most are connected together in larger-than-life sculptural arrays that depict dinosaurs, Chinese dragons, classic cars, wild animals, and much, much more.
The resulting sculptures, combined with the excellence of artistic carving and painting, are off the hook.
This wonderful show runs from early October until November 1 in three Southern California locations: Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, and Safari Park in San Diego.
In Long Island, New York, you can find it at Old Westbury Gardens.
