Do you have Halloween fever yet? Here’s another fun event for your family to get into the spooky spirt… 

Magic of the Jack O’Lanterns will be back at Littleton’s Hudson Gardens for a third year, and features a family-friendly glowing trail of more than 7,000 hand-carved pumpkins as well as light show displays such as a nautical seascape, a pirate ship, dinosaurs, and dragons.

Presented by Denver-based Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, the festival kicks off on Friday, Sept. 22, and will run select nights through Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Magic of the Jack O’Lanterns attendees will see pumpkins far more intricate than just classic jack o’lanterns. Some of the one-of-a-kind pumpkins feature artworks, characters, celebrities, athletic stars, and unique designs. Past favorites include “Harry Potter” pumpkins as well as classic art pumpkins featuring Mona Lisa, Starry Night, American Gothic, and The Scream.

Magic of the Jack O’Lanterns organizers said the festival will also have local food trucks on-site and drink stations with non-alcoholic and themed alcoholic beverages available.

Tickets start at $14.99 for kids and $19.99 for adults on select nights. Children 2 and under will not require a ticket to enter. Tickets can be purchased at
