Get your tickets now for Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular, presented by Citizens Bank, at Roger Williams Park Zoo. Celebrating 30 years of Halloween magic Oct. 4–Nov. 4, this year’s show includes more than 5,000 intricately carved pumpkins featuring scenes of wizards, fairy tales, and the luminaries of great myths and legends, alongside superheroes and historical figures. New this year — special event-themed nights from 6–8 p.m., included in the price of admission.
October 10 & 11
Meet and take photos with beloved fairy tale characters. Grab a candy apple or some witch's brew, and as the sun sets, find your favorite fairy tale's personalities intricately carved on the pumpkins on the trail.
October 17 & 18
Wizards and witches get your wands, mount your brooms and fly on over to meet some of the characters from the wizarding world. Try a butter brew, then travel the pumpkin trail to identify characters and scenes from the wizarding world.
October 24 & 25
You never know who might show up at the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. Comic book fans may meet Black Panther, Captain America, Iron Man, or Spider Man and the gang.
