Kentucky’s Jack-o’-Lantern Trail Named #1 Event In The Country [GALLERY]
Kentucky's Jack-O'-Lantern Trail has been named #1 Halloween event in the Country by Country Living Magazine. I would say this is no surprise to anyone with the amount of artwork and pumpkins it takes to build the attraction.
From October 1st through November 1st, a quarter-mile trail in Louisville's Iroquois Park will once again be lit up with jack-o'-lanterns. There will be one major change this year to the path. Instead of visitors walking through it will be all drive-thru.
There are over 5,000 illuminated pumpkins used to decorate the pathway. Over 100 of the pumpkins are carved out with different designs.
The theme for this season's event is "A Hitchhiker's Guide to Magical Places". There will be a variety of special features to catch your eye as you drive through the woods with different sets from Wild Wild West to Outer Space and beyond.
According to Patch.com;
The trail is open from dusk until 11 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $35 for cars, minivans and SUVs (no motorcycles) while passenger vans, limos and RVs are $50 per carload. Due to COVID-19, no food or concessions will be sold at this year's event.
The event is a fundraiser for the Louisville Parks Foundation. It helps to support 100+ public parks in Louisville, and a portion of every ticket sold to this event is invested right back in the public parks. www.lpfky.org
