Imagine a place where you can meet wizards, witches, the luminaries of great myths and legends, and super heroes all at the same time.  Sound impossible?  Of course not!  It is all at the 2018 Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular presented by Citizens Bank October 4 – November 4, 2018 at Roger Williams Park Zoo.  Come enjoy intricately carved pumpkins telling the stories of some of our most beloved characters in literature.  The imagery of each pumpkin will remind adults and children of their favorite characters, who fly, fight against evil, achieve super human feats or provide joy and love to their followers.
