Press Coverage

Thank you to all the media outlets for the great coverage about the newest hit in Boston, Jack O’ Lantern Journey.  And thank you to all the guests that came along and continue to take the journey.  Here are some highlights!

Kids Menu: Don’t miss the Jack O’Lantern event at Franklin Park Zoo

“The Kids Menu was lucky enough to attend last week’s Franklin Park Zoo’s Jack O’Lantern Journey. We cannot recommend this event highly enough! The Journey is a spectacular half-mile stroll through the nighttime zoo, after the animals have gone to bed. The path is lined with creative, colorful, illuminated Jack O’Lanterns, some of them silly, some spooky, but always engaging and fun, and a hit with all ages. If you didn’t get to check out this awesome autumnal neighborhood offering, don’t worry. The exhibit will be up until Sat., Nov. 10.”

“Since so many of us work in Boston, it is nice to plan a Friday evening where you can meet your spouse and child for an activity in the city. That is exactly what we did at Jack O’ Lantern Journey at the Franklin Park Zoo.”

“The Franklin zoo comes to life at night during the month of October. The zoo is decorated with thousands of pumpkins representing various scenes of the animal kingdom and other surprises. We had a magical 40 minute stroll last night walking through the zoo. The line is long to get in but thanks to their timed stamped tickets, once your in, there is no sense of crowd. I highly recommend this tour, especially for families with young children!”
