Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Park Zoo


Feast your senses on autumn’s beauty, winter’s swirling snow, spring’s first blossoms and summer’s ocean breezes intricately carved on thousands of pumpkins displayed along the Zoo’s beautiful Wetlands Trail. They will also be presenting a special sensory-friendly Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular on designated nights, an hour before the trail opens to the public. Designed for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences and their families, the over 5000 pumpkins will light up the Zoo’s Wetlands Trail, but there will be no music or special effects. Please note: Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular is open rain or shine.
