OCEANPORT, N.J., Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- There is something for everyone who visits THE GLOW: A Jack O'Lantern Experience this fall at Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. Presented by Townsquare Live Events, and set to open October 7th and run during weekends throughout the month, THE GLOW promises a family-friendly, immersive Halloween stroll along a trail illuminated by more than 5,000 hand-carved Jack O'Lanterns.
This Halloween happening will delight visitors as they are surrounded by thousands of intricately-carved pumpkins dangling above and along the quarter-mile walk. In the Pre-Historic Park, Jack O'Lantern dinosaurs stand up to 16 feet tall. Captain Jack and his band of marauders helm a 30-foot-long pirate ship, complete with skeletons and pumpkin pirates. In the pumpkin graveyard, guests will encounter black cats, ghosts and gravestones.
The Jersey Jaunt illuminates some of the Garden State's most notables. Squash look-a-likes include rock stars, sports figures and gangsters including Tony Soprano, Eli Manning, Derek Jeter, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Frankie Valli.
In the spirit of the forthcoming presidential election, in Politicians Row, candidates will appear as never before in all their pumpkin glory, even a Trumpkin! Homage will be paid to past Presidents Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Obama and more.
"Townsquare is excited to be bringing this enchanting Halloween wonderland to Monmouth Park and the Jersey Shore communities this October," said Shannon Donnelly, Vice President, Townsquare Live Events. "We have a team of more than 15 artists, carvers and producers who've been working year-round to create this magical event sure to captivate audiences of all ages."
The family fun also includes costume contests, pumpkin painting classes and a face painting station. A live pumpkin carving demonstration will show visitors how to create their own masterpieces.
THE GLOW's hashtag photo-op spot will ensure this experience will last a lifetime.

The price of the class includes: entrance to THE GLOW, 2 glasses of wine and 75 minutes of instruction with a master carver (event limited to 30 participants, pre-registration required).
