Pumpkin Patch Extravaganza -Best in RI


This incredible pumpkin patch spectacular display is in high gear at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence RI. And it is

Roger Williams Zoo Halloween Pumpkins

Pumpkin Patch Extraordinaire RI Style

like no other in RI until October 31st.  This  mega pumpkin event draws people from in state and out of state .


John Reckner, a Massachusetts native, who 20+ years ago started the pumpkin idea brewing.  What you see as you walk through this zoo trail are over 5000+ carved pumpkins which are all lit up.  Every year has a theme and this year it’s called the “A Journey Around the World”…carvings depicting the Taj Mahal, Great wall of China, Pyramids…all with incredible detail.  Spooky nights and fun pumpkins do not come better than this one when you are thinking pumpkin patch!


These pumpkins are so well carved, amazingly carved I must say, that you know that you are looking at the Mona Lisa’s of the pumpkin world.  And yes, they only last a limited amount of time so this artistry goes with the passing of time- lost forever except in pictures.  Imagine that Mr. Reckner and about 30 workers carve 10,000 pumpkins for the month they are on display (through October 31st)!!


 If you live anywhere within driving distance of Providence, RI this is a best in RI.  Even from Massachusetts and Connecticut travelers come to view this annual pumpkin event at Roger Williams Zoo.  It is open nightly through Halloween night beginning at 6 pm  (be aware that weekends have long lines) and going until 10 pm for a cost of $12 for adults and $9 for children (Fridays & Saturdays cost $1 more per person).  Direct information can be obtained on this event by calling 401-785-3510 or on line at www.rogerwilliamsparkzoo.org.


So wear your comfy shoes and bring your friends or kids, cameras a MUST  and make it a nice night out around the Providence scene (since Waterfires are almost gone until next year!).  This is one Spooky Halloween Nights you can not miss and will remember for years to come.  It is definitely on my to do list for the next week so put it on yours too and oh, btw, I am lousy at pumpkin carving but do real estate really well…visit the

    Ginny, your post made me realize that it IS Halloween already, how time flies! And yes, this is such an amazing Halloween event to look forward to. It would have been nice to treat my family out to this even for Halloween we were close enough to the area. North Kingston always have interesting events like this, just like North Kingston Short Sale Agents know exciting happenings in town.
