Lehigh Valley Jack-O-Lantern Festival
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs will be hosting their first ever Jack-O-Lantern Festival at Coca-Cola Park on Saturday, October 19 from 6-9 p.m. The IronPigs are looking for community involvement as they are in search of multitudes of pumpkin carvings for their first annual Jack-O-Lantern contest. Tickets are available now for just $10 (children two and under are free).
The event will feature many fun activities:
- Live Music
- Pumpkin carving demos by professional pumpkin carvers
- Children’s costume parade and a costume contest
- Horse drawn hayrides
- Kids Zone will be open
- Clowns and face painting
- Palm readings/Tarot card readings
Fireworks will take place at 9 p.m. and will be set to Halloween music. The entirety of the Jack-O-Lanterns will be lit throughout the evening as the night’s primary spectacle. There will also be a large sampling of food items to be included through IronPigs Concessions. Various food trucks will be on hand as well. Dan Schantz Greenhouse and Cut Flower Outlet will be selling pumpkins.
Once nightfall bestows upon Coca-Cola Park, an eerie sight will be filled throughout with Jack-O-Lanterns galore! Spooky Halloween theme silhouettes will line the concourse and field glowing in the night. Be a part of the fun and submit a Jack-O-Lantern or silhouette!
