Walk Through Thousands of Carved Pumpkins at This Popular Illinois Experience
At three-quarters of a mile long, get ready to walk into a world of pumpkins at this annual event featuring an unbelievable display of hand-carved creations.
Jack-O-Lantern World is now open at Paulus Park in Lake Zurich, Illinois, and has thousands of pumpkins that have been designed by over 50 artisans who built 17 "immersive worlds," according to their official website.
The Jack-O-Lanterns took several months and "thousands of hours" to be carved by hand, according to their Facebook page. Designers, architects, carpenters, and event planners joined forces to build dozens of hand-carved pumpkin displays that include an Eiffel Tower and a large butterfly.
The "whimsical celebration" of Halloween will be open nightly from Thursday through Sunday. Tickets for the display vary by the night with prices starting at $20 for adults and $14 for kids from 3-12 years old.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Jack-O-Lantern World is supporting Susan G. Komen with a pink pumpkin section at the event, and an opportunity to donate to the organization while viewing the pumpkins.

Food trucks will be offering treats for guests attending the hand-carved pumpkin display, along with a selection of beverages to enjoy.
