Iroquois Park will be lit up with 5000 pumpkins of various sizes and shapes beginning October 9 and running through November 4. Artists are busy working in a huge warehouse this week drawing and carving faces of famous people like Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein and Willie Nelson and fun characters from children's books and movies. And they don't just carve the pumpkins once during the show... they need to replace all 5000 pumpkins on a regular basis.
When they are complete the pumpkins are placed along the winding pathway at Iroquois Park - some up in the trees, some back in the woods. Then they add holograms and music to enhance the theme of a "Night in the Library".
The show runs daily and the gates open at dusk every day. Gates close at 11pm on Sunday through Thursday nights and midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.
