Jack O'Lantern Spectacular at Potawatomi Zoo


The Potawatomi Zoo held it's adult only Halloween party tonight.

It's the Jack O'Lantern Spectacular.

A D-J spun some pretty cool tunes while people explored the park's carved pumpkins.

Some of the designs were Wolverine from X-Men, Indiana Jones and the bounty hunter from Star Wars.

36 groups carved and painted the donated gourds.

"The event started with a donor buying a large amount of pumpkins and decorated the entire zoo," said Special Events and Membership Coordinator Rachel Rogers. "This year he bought 11 tons of pumpkins so you can see throughout the entire zoo jack o'lanterns everywhere."

All the proceeds from tonight will go to the zoo.

And staff tells us the animals from Australia were awake to enjoy the party.
