Event added by Maria C.

Chicago Botanic Garden is daring to be different, as you'll find nothing else like this event in Chicago. More than 1,000 hand-carved pumpkins—some as large as 150 pounds—will light up the night. To make it extra ghoul, New York-based Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns will spend up to 15 hours sculpting a single pumpkin using scalpels, knives, gouges and power tools. The LED-lit jack-o’-lanterns will be staged along a festive, paved pathway, starting at the Esplanade. Along the way, encounter entertaining characters, watch live carving and view the ghostly trains in the Model Railroad Garden: Landmarks of America.
