As Halloween begins to creep up, Durham recreation is prepared to fully embrace the season with a brand new event: a trip to see more than 5,000 illuminated jack-o-lanterns. 

The Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI, gives guests the opportunity to see such a sight.

Recreation director Sherry Hill said this was a new idea she thought would be fun for residents.

The Saturday, Oct. 26 trip includes transportation and entrance to the event and a meal at Trattoria Zooma Restaurant.

“It’s fun with your friends or family. You don’t have to drive. Events are planned for you,” said Hill. “It’s a fun experience where you can take pictures and make memories.”

Pick-up for the event will be at 2:30 p.m. at Strong school. Attendees will be taking a coach bus and should expect to return around 10 p.m. 

Tickets are $108 for adults and $105 for children (age 2 to 12). Register for tickets at durhamct.recdesk.com/community/home. For more information, call the department at 860-343-6724.
