Tired of the same old haunted walks and hayrides? This year try something new that will light up the night with Halloween spirit! THE GLOW: A Jack O’ Lantern Experience is a new event that takes guests through a “virtual pumpkin wonderland.”

THE GLOW is a 30-40 minute walk down Jack’s Lane where you and your family can marvel at hand crafted jack o’ lanterns that will blow your mind. From Derek Jeter, to Katniss Everdeen, these creations are sure not to disappoint! These pumpkins are carved by amazing artists and take anywhere from two hours to two days, and are all grown locally around the region!

Come on out to Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport every weekend in October, but be sure to get your tickets ahead of time. Tickets can be bought in advance ONLY; they will not be available at the door. Trust us, you don't want to wait - they're selling fast!

Admission starts at $16 per person, and children 2 and under are free! This event is rain or shine, and fall beverages and concessions will be served.

Check out the impressive jack o' lanterns in the gallery above, and be sure to use the official hashtag #THEGLOWNJ when posting pictures of your own GLOW experience!
