Louisville’s Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

We love carving pumpkins for Halloween.  Even though we may not be very good at making fancy faces and scenes on them, it’s a tradition that we look forward to every year.  Now, imagine FIVE THOUSAND carved pumpkins in themed areas with music!  It’s the Louisville Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular!  Nestled in Iroquois Park, the Jack-O-Lantern display is an amazing sight that MUST be a part of your yearly Halloween traditions.  The displays are absolutely breathtaking, and take pumpkin carving to an absolute extreme.
