Jack’s Pumpkin Glow Brings a New Spooktacular Light Display

Why use one pumpkin for a display, when many will do the trick?

The master carvers behind Jack’s Pumpkin Glow coming to Lisle this Halloween season are savants at creating displays from a patch-full of pumpkins as well as creative jack-o-lanterns.

Families can see life-sized sculptures as well as princesses, superheroes, dinosaurs, pirates, movie stars and musicians along a trail of pumpkin art. Made for walking in the Sensory Garden Playground, there will be 1,000 fresh carvings each week throughout the season.

With the carvers on hand, families can watch the artists at work, get tips from the pros and pick up a pumpkin.
