The Louisville Jack O' Lantern Spectacular is such a great event! Our group consisted of myself, my husband, our two girls (4 & 8) and my cousin. We all enjoyed it very much. We had our picture taken, the girls got hot apple cider, and my husband and cousin enjoyed a few adult beverages. The pumpkins are absolutely spectacular. They... More

My husband and I visited with our 9 year-old and 12 year-old on Saturday night. The line was looooooooong, with a wait time of nearly an hour and a half. We arrived with pre-purchased tickets a little before opening at 7PM and the line was already stretched over an hour wait! Thankfully, it was a nice evening, not too warm... More

We went to the JOLS and it rocked! The line was VERY long but they had a screen to play cartoons, numerous stops along the way to buy well priced snacks and drinks, picnic tables and live entertainment. The pumpkins are freaking awesome and it was overwhelming in a good way! We are considering making it a yearly tradition.

The line meanders through the amphitheater. We went on a Thursday night and it took an hour and s half. The real pumpkins only last about a week and are constantly being replaced.

Visited the pumpkin spectacular again this year and loved it again. They have the most amazing pumpkins on display. It's hard to describe what that many carved pumpkins look like but it is beautiful. They have a few food and drink booths scattered about if you get hungry. I plan to see this beautiful sight every year.

This event lives up to its name plus some! With over 5000 jack-o-lanterns along a dark, dirt path, we were blown away with not only the volume but with the vast talent of the artists that carved the pumpkins. I took soooo many pictures!

We are came in from out of town for the Jack O'Lantern Spectacular and it was totally worth it. Make sure to give yourself enough time. We arrived shortly after 6 and bought our tickets and were a bit disappointed because we had to wait in a ridiculously LONG line. However, the silver lining - the line moves VERY quickly.... More

It was very well planned out for visitors. The opening night is not the night to attend. We plan on going back next year.
