Jack-O-Lantern Jaunt & Halloween Haunt, Mukwonago
October 26, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until October 27, 2018
Field Park in Mukwonago will be filled with carved pumpkins donated by local businesses and individuals and placed along the walking paths for the 16th annual Jack-O-Lantern Jaunt & Halloween Haunt. Civic groups and youth groups carve pumpkins and the Jack-O-Lanterns are lit every evening from opening until close. Everyone is invited to view the pumpkins at their leisure.
Along with the Rotary, who will present another Halloween Haunt, community members will be providing the Jack-O-Lanterns to cover Field Park with a spooky aura. As in previous years, businesses will compete for the best display.
This year will be a bit different as they are starting the walk-through at 6:00 PM. Vehicles will not be allowed into the Park. This is due to concerns for pedestrian safety. Parking will be available at Park View Middle School.
At 8:00 PM, Christopher Mihm will again be showing one of his acclaimed movies. This year’s offering is “Guns of the Apocalypse” The premier of this film is on September 26, 2018. Tickets are almost sold out and you get to see it for FREE!!!! Join us for this fantastic event. Spend some time on his website. There is plenty to see.
(Please bring your own chairs or blankets to view the movie.)
The Jaunt/Haunt has grown to be the community’s premier family event. Low admission prices coupled with attractions and decorations suitable for all ages make it a popular destination. Adults $2.00, Children 12 and under, $1.00, Infants 2 and under are free.
As in previous years, the Jaunt will again be placing carved Jack-O-Lanterns donated by the Mukwonago area community residents around the entire park. We will supply and light the candles that are placed in the Jack-O-Lanterns. Any number of Jack-O-Lanterns can be carved for this event. Individuals, families, groups, clubs and any other interested carvers can bring their Jack-O-Lanterns to the park on Friday, October 26 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. Displays can be set up at this time. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that everyone in the family can enjoy.
The Jaunt will be held on Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th. The walk will be from 6:00 PM until 9:30 PM each night.
