Journey through the woods on a crisp autumn night. You will follow your guide on a trail of glowing Jack O’ Lanterns; along the way you stop to meet the characters in an Irish Folktale that unfolds along the path. The founders of New Jersey’s Original Jack O’ Lantern Night Hike are bringing their 30-year tradition to a new home at the Stony Brook Millstone Watershed.
Imagine walking through the woods on a crisp autumn night; the trail is lit with hundreds of glowing Jack O’ Lanterns, along the way you stop to meet the characters in a drama that unfolds along the path. Since 1987, children have marveled at the adventures of Stingy Jack and the first Jack O’Lantern, an original drama.
While other Halloween programs are designed to frighten, the goal of this event is to educate and enchant. Guided hikes begin every 15 minutes; last hike begins at 8:15 p.m. Space is limited for each hike; pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Tickets are on sale here.
