RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns Does Not Disappoint


SECAUCUS, NJ - The rain poured down on Thursday night, but that didn't stop Halloween lovers from traveling to the Meadowlands Expo Center to see the debut of RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns in New Jersey.

RISE provides a unique, memorable family-friendly experience with over 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o’lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path, set to a musical score. There is truly something for everyone: sports fans, horror movie buffs, Star Wars, Disney -- you name it.  

In addition to the individual Jack o'lanterns, RISE also features multi-pumpkin artistic structures including life-sized dinosaurs and dragons, princesses and storm troopers. They are truly larger than life.

At its meeting on April 10, the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders honored three individuals with proclamations, each of whom purchased a $3,000 bulletproof vest for the K-9 unit.
