Behind the Scenes at the Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular

Employees for Passion for Pumpkins show us how it's done.

Matt Curll was a busy man in the hours leading up to the opening of the Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Park Zoo last night. As an employee of Passion for Pumpkins, the company that assembles the popular display of about 5,000 illuminated and carved pumpkins each year, Curll and his co-workers spent yesterday zipping around the zoo in a golf cart, putting the finishing touches on the event.

He wore a GoPro camera and took us behind the scenes:
