It is with heavy hearts that Passion for Pumpkins is pausing Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular this year due to travel restrictions nationwide. We know this has become a fall highlight for many members and guests. Health and safety remains the top priority for both the Zoo and Passion for Pumpkins, and the health crisis of COVID-19 has unfortunately rendered it impossible to move forward with the event this season. The Minnesota Zoo greatly appreciates its partnership with Passion for Pumpkins and we will continue to work together to bring Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular back in 2021.
