Deets: Television Production and Event Industry veterans Ben Biscotti, Tony Schubert and Bobby Rossi have come together to provide Angelenos with one Halloween experience they won’t want to miss. Set to take place in Calabasas this October, the greater Los Angeles area will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a Halloween wonderland filled with thousands of hand-carved Jack O’ Lanterns in a carefully selected location with incredible historical significance. Legend has it that in 1824, at the top of the Calabasas grade on the original El Camino Real, a rancher from Oxnard spilled a wagonload of pumpkins while en route to Los Angeles. Sometime later, hundreds of pumpkin seeds sprouted alongside the road. As a result of the surprising event, the area was dubbed Las Calabasas— "the place where the pumpkins fell.” 
Nights of The Jack, a must-see Halloween experience will delight visitors of all ages by bringing thousands of one-of-a-kind handcarved pumpkins to life at King Gillette Ranch. 

Nights Of The Jack will be more than your traditional Halloween attraction. Vast grounds of intricately hand-carved and illuminated pumpkins will welcome visitors as they make their way through the half-mile trail around the ranch and will be open to enchant Los Angeles residents and tourists alike all month long. Over 20 themed installations will be showcased thanks to thousands of hand-carving hours; including, a Land of Dinosaurs that will spotlight a massive Brontosaurus, an enormous T-Rex, a Triceratops that you won’t want to miss, and more. The Under the Sea installation will be complete with sharks, turtles, jellyfish and other sea creatures for everyone to enjoy. Other theme installations will include fairy tale characters, sports legends, Halloween classics and of course, no Los Angeles celebration would be complete without a treasure trove of celebrity themed jack o’ lanterns spanning the generations.
