The annual Louisville Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular returns to Iroquois Park next month with a brand new theme.

According to their website:

The Louisville event, celebrating its 9th year in 2021, is held in Iroquois Park with 5,000 carved pumpkins illuminated at night as an “art show”.Proceeds benefit the Louisville Parks Foundation.

Last year, due to Covid, they had to go from the traditional walk-through event to a drive-through type of format for social distancing and safety regulations. In 2021, the walk-through Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular returns with a new theme!

I attended the annual Louisville Jack O ' Lantern Spectacular a couple of years back. My first thought was "who wants to pay money to go see a bunch of pumpkins carved by kids?" I was clearly wrong about this place. It was absolutely AMAZING! These hand-crafted pumpkins took a lot of time and skill to create. IF you've never been to the Jack O' Lantern Spectacular, I highly encourage taking the family out one night. You will be amazed! Here's a video of last year's event. It should give you a little taste of what you can expect.
