“Jack O’Lantern Spectacular” at Iroquois Park Offers “$10 after 10pm” Discount Ticket Special!

Wednesday October 23, 2013

Discount tickets are available for the “Jack O’Lantern Spectacular” event underway through November 2 at Iroquois Park. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, after 10 p.m., adult tickets will be reduced to $10 – a two dollar discount off the regular price.

These discounted tickets must be purchased at the Iroquois Amphitheater box office, after 10 p.m., on the night they will be used.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday prices for seniors and children remain the same: seniors (62+) are $10, and $9 for children 12 and under. Children under 3 years old are admitted free.

This one-of-a-kind event features thousands of artistically-carved, illuminated pumpkins lighting up a wooded walking trail in Iroquois Park. Proceeds from the event benefit the Louisville Metro Parks Foundation and Kosair Charities.

The Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular takes place nightly starting at dusk through November 2. The trail is open 7 p.m. to midnight, staying open until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

While the trail will feature more than 5,000 pumpkins at any given time, more than 15,000 will be used throughout the three-week run of the event as pumpkins are removed and replaced. The wooded trail begins just outside of Iroquois Amphitheater (1080 Amphitheater Road) and weaves its
way for a third of a mile through the trees with themed sections set to music.

An “Around the World” theme will feature different ‘countries’ along the path, with carved, lit pumpkins representing the most famous sites, symbols, and historical figures associated with them. There is also a strong local theme with UofL, UK, Derby, Louisville Slugger and local celebrities featured. The pumpkins rotate on a weekly basis creating a different experience each week.
