Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Last night, I went with a friend to the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Park Zoo. She always find interesting things for us to do.  There were thousand of carved, lit pumpkins along the trail and in the pond. It was really something to see. There were pumpkins depicting famous people and scenes from different periods in history and pop culture along with hundreds of other "regular" carved pumpkins.
You were not allowed to use flash photography or a tripod, so these photos are hand held shots.
Here's one of my favorites.
Even the Duke was there.

The event runs through Halloween. Here's my advice if you decide to visit this Halloween spectacular. The gates open at 6:00, and it is very crowded at that time. Wait until 7:30 when the first rush is leaving and you will be less crowded on the trail, and you will be able  to park closer to the entrance. Also go Monday through Thursday as the weekend has the peak crowds.
