The Celtic tradition of hollowing out and carving faces into vegetables is older than Halloween itself. It has fascinated us for centuries from the “Legend of Stingy Jack” to the more recent Pumpkin King of Tim Burton. With over 5,000 carved gourds haunting a quarter mile walking trail, this age old tradition is in good hands. The bountiful display of these astounding works of illuminated art is breathtaking. (Many of the artistic lanterns will be carved by LEO Readers’ Choice 2nd place winner for visual artist, Damon Thompson.) The Jack-O-Lanterns are presented in themed scenes accompanied by music, providing a fun-filled walk for all. Proceeds will benefit the Louisville Metro Parks Foundation.
