JACK O'LANTERN SPECTACULAR

More than 5000 illuminated jack 0'lanterns light the trail at Iroquois Park.
The setting is perfect for this event.  The theme for this year is the alphabet and along the trail music accompanies each area.
7:15 pm to 11:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. This event runs through November 5 so there is more time to fit it in your schedule.
This is an annual event that gets better each year!
