The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze is one of those seasonal events that I've heard about for years but never gotten around to checking out. And that probably would have been true again this year if not for a friend's excellent planning skills. This VERY popular event sells out quickly, so tickets were purchased within the first couple of days they went on sale last month. And taking a quick look at the calendar this morning, it appears The Blaze is sold out for the rest of the month (though there are 2 days still available in November).
In case you don't make it this go around, I'd definitely recommend including The Blaze in your Halloween festivities next year. You'll see more than 7,000 carved pumpkins (by volunteers!) lit up & arranged in the most amazing ways... giant spider webs, witches, tombstones, dinosaurs, jack-n-the-boxes, animals, sunflowers... I could go on & on. It's truly amazing. Check out a few of our photos from the night... we now have incredible inspiration for carving our pumpkin at home this week!
