Think spooky cool as more than 1,000 hand-carved pumpkins, some as large as 150 pounds, will light up the night at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Night of 1,000 Jack-o’-Lanterns is the only event of its kind in the Chicago area. Using scalpels, knives, gouges, and power tools, artists for the New York-based company Rise of the Jack O ’Lanterns spend up to 15 hours sculpting a single pumpkin. Along the pathway, encounter entertaining characters, watch live carving, and view the ghostly trains in the Model Railroad Garden: Landmarks of America. This is a ticketed event. We will have dinner before the event at a location to be announced. Dinner will be on your own. (ER)
