Pumpkins in waterfront RI real estate

Jack o Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Park – Providece


It was the creative genius of John Reckner, a Massachusetts native.  What you see as you walk through this zoo trail are over 5000 meticulously carved pumpkins which are all lit up.  Every year has a theme and this year it is “all the world is a stage”.  All this with the background music  of the era playing to bring you back to that time.  Now this is one piece of RI real estate on Providence turf you must explore!


These pumpkins are so well carved, amazingly carved I must say.  The most intricate pumpkin carvings are done by a team.   Mr. Reckner obviously gets such pleasure with the joy and amazement that he brings to so many fans year after year who return to this Jack-o-Lantern spectacular.


 You just can’t miss this Jack-o-lantern spectacular if you live anywhere within driving distance of Providence, RI.   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 comfy shoes and bring your friends

or kids, cameras a MUST  and make it a nice night out around the Providence scene (you might catch a Waterfire too).  This is one Jack-O-Lantern Halloween extravaganza you can not miss.  So as I go home and look at my carved pumpkin, I lament that my artistic talents are not where Mr Reckner would even consider acceptable…this is a courtesy public blog post by your waterfront RI real estate Real Estate Agent, Ginny Lacey Gorman.
