Yeah, there are haunted houses and costume parties, but Louisville’s Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular is the city’s must-see Halloween event, now in its sixth year. Wait until dark and then walk through a forest of 5,000 pumpkins, often intricately carved and always glowing. You’ve got your classic grinners, but some that will truly dazzle. The path is just a third of a mile, but you’ll be stopping often.
