Allentown embraces seasonal spooks

October 4, 2017 by  

Once again, the spooky event Jack-O-Lantern Lane has come to the DaVinci Science Center in Allentown.

Both children and adults can walk through the display to see over 50 handcrafted jack-o-lanterns designed by a local artist Ian Fetterman. The display has interactive activities too, and combines art and science.

In Halloween town kids can learn about the history of jack-o-lanterns and walk through the mysterious forest. Special science experiments will be performed with dry ice and making candy.

Children can explore light and how it changes at the Circuit House, and learn about sound at the Sound Tree. In the mysterious forest, they can watch colors change using special glasses, and there will be an opportunity to take pictures.

The carved pumpkin display has carved jack-o-lanterns about many popular monsters, events, and people in science. There are also carved displays based on the Creeper monsters from the video game series Minecraft.

A wood sprites display depicts the creatures that appear in the movie Avatar. Guests can also take a look at the jack-o-lanterns display themed around Leonardo da Vinci’s creations, the moon landing, and ocean life.

Allentown has a variety of printing companies that can help event organizers with promotional services for holiday events or clubs, schools or business events.

Having got underway on September 23, Jack-O-Lantern Lane will run up to November 5.
