the rise of the jack o’lantern

Descanso Gardens

1418 Descanso Drive, La Canada Flintridge, 91011


This is an amazing new all-ages night-time Halloween extravaganza, that will light up Descanso Gardens this year! More than 5,000 hand-carved jack o’lanterns created by professional artists and sculptors are arranged in artful displays throughout a 1/3-mile scenic trail within the Rose Garden. The entire family-friendly 45-minute stroll through the grounds. The path is stroller and wheelchair accessible.  It’s not scary, like a haunted house, so it’s appropriate for all ages (unless your kids are afraid of the dark – that’s he only scary thing here!).

Advance ticket purchase required, and tickets are for timed entry.
