The Jack-o-lantern Spectacular at the Roger Williams Park Zoo provides a seasonal experience that only the glow hundreds of pumpkins could make. A bounty of artfully carved pumpkins, all with meticulous detail, are on display in a safe, family setting.
New this year is the option to dine at the zoo before setting out on the trails. Start your spooky evening off with an all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet before heading down to see the spectacular at your leisure. A full menu of choices can be found online. Seating is limited and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Some dates are already sold out.
Whether you're eating and spooking, or just spooking, the event runs nightly through Halloween. Proceeds from the Spectacular will support the zoo's education and conservation efforts, as well as, zoo improvements. Admission prices are listed online, for both combined price of dinner and spooks, or just the spooks. Pointers and tips for the evening are listed on the Zoo's site as well.
