ABOUT THE TRAIL
The trail is a 1/3 mile soft surface, woodland path, with several steep slopes. Docents are stationed along the trail to answer questions and guide patrons. Patrons using a wheelchair may have difficulty traversing the trail under rain-soaked conditions.
No pets or animals, other than service animals (such as seeing-eye pets under leash control of their owner), are allowed in the Iroquois Amphitheater, or on the Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular trail.
OCTOBER 8 – NOVEMBER 3, 2019
The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular began in Oxford, Massachusetts in 1988. The Louisville event, celebrating its 7th year in 2019, is held in Iroquois Park with 5,000 carved pumpkins lining a 1/3-mile walking trail, illuminated at night as an “art show”. The show runs daily from dusk to 11 p.m., during the week (Sunday-Thursday), and closes at midnight on Friday & Saturday.
