Rise of the Jack O' Lanterns

  • LA Convention Center & Fairplex Pomona (map)

Rise of the Jack O' Lanterns has returned again to the greater Los Angeles Area with 2 two new venues. Los Angeles Convention Center October 13 - 16 and The Fairplex in Pomona October 27-30.   

Come see thousands of hand-carved illuminated jack o’lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path and set to a musical score designed to bring out the Halloween spirit in visitors of all ages! The various new and exciting themes created for 2016 are sure to impress both RISE newbies and returning RISE fans.


See classic fan-favorites like life-sized dinosaurs, dragons, and safari animals, as well as a number of new structures featuring time-honored characters from some favorite movies, including one that will make you feel like you’re in a galaxy far, far, away.

Watch one of four live-carving stations wherer artists create the different types of displays you see in the show all right before your eyes! Catch some of the most talented pumpkin sculptors in the country carving signature 3D sculpted pumpkins, and learn how the team churns out thousands of Halloween jack o’lanterns per day, in our Mini Carving Factory.

Using a mixture of jack o'lantern art that is made from both real pumpkins and from life-like carveable artificial pumpkins, RISE will continue that tradition this year. For the first time in 2016, RISE is carving and lighting 5,000 FRESH REAL PUMPKINS each weekend at each location!
