This Halloween season, for one weekend only, one of America’s premier Halloween events is coming to New Jersey.  RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns is a truly unique event that you will want to add to your list of fun things to do with the family this season.  Debuting for the first time in New Jersey, it will be held Oct 27 through Oct 30 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus from 10 am – 10:30 pm. 

Come see over 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o’lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path and set to a musical score designed to bring out the Halloween spirit in visitors of all ages.   Experience larger than life dinosaurs, dragons, safari animals, as well as a number of time honored characters from your favorite movies.  They are also creating multi-pumpkin structures with dozens of illuminated jack o’lanterns assembled into life-sized pieces of art.

Be sure to check out the live carving demonstrations so you can see how the magic happens right before your eyes.  There will also be 100+ pound carved pumpkins onsite.  Did you know, it takes their artists an average of 10-15 hours to illustrate and carve each pumpkin to perfection?  This year, the RISE will be creating stunning individual jack o’ lanterns and huge jack o’ lantern sculptures of many of your favorite film heroes, including many from a galaxy far, far away… 

2016 is also the 50th anniversary to the Peanut’s iconic cartoon, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! To mark the occasion the RISE has teamed up with Peanuts Worldwide to bring scenes from the cartoon to life.    

The pumpkin trail at RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns is well-lit and well-staffed to ensure it will be a safe and enjoyable experience for the whole family.  Since it is held indoors you won’t have to worry about being rained out.  Tickets are on sale now and required in advance so be sure to get yours now before they sell out.   Head to RISE of The Jack O’Lanterns today and receive up to 50% off admission.
