Louisville Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Louisville, Kentucky


The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular began in Oxford, Massachusetts in 1988 and now is in Louisville, Kentucky celebrating its 8th year in 2020.  This event is held in Iroquois Park with 5,000 carved pumpkins lining a 1/3 mile walking trail.  They are illuminated at night as an “art” show and this is a trip you will never forget. 


Day One   This morning we head west by I-40 enjoying beautiful scenery as we travel through North Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky.  We will make some surprising stops along the way to be a part of your exciting journey.  We arrive in Louisville late evening.  Dinner is included tonight at one of the best restaurants.
