Over the weekend, I went to Rise of the Jack-o-Lantern’s. I’ve always wanted to go a similar event at a local zoo, except I heard it is an actual nightmare. Filled with long lines, cold temperatures, fuck loads of baby carriages, and not one clear view of a pumpkin. Uh, pass. At least this event was indoors, and large.
We had plenty of room to move around and check out the pumpkins. the event boasts 5000 pumpkins, but I suspect most of them were the filler pumpkins on the floor, decorated by random people. Uh, some were better than others.
Thankfully we didn’t pay much for the tickets, but I’m not sure I’d go back next year. The professional pumpkins were quite impressive. But a lot of people don’t understand basic concepts like NOT USING FLASH ON A PRE-LIT PUMPKIN. What the hell is wrong with people?!
