Nights Of The Jack is Halloween fun for everyone. Adults, families, and children alike are welcome and won’t want to miss this hair-raising feast for the senses. Spooky but never scary, kids will love the enchanted renditions of their favorite characters in pumpkin-form and have fun amongst the big multi-sensory scenes. Adults will appreciate the artistry and craftmanship of the elaborate sets and be able to enjoy alcohol from two full bars. Everyone can enjoy picking out Halloween gifts and light-up items from the souvenir shop.
Nights Of The Jack is hospitality-forward and offers a premium food and beverage experience, including some of LA’s best food trucks. The Spookeasy is a high-end full bar and will have ample Halloween treats for adults, including top shelf spirits, cocktails, craft beer and wine. There will also be sweet treats, coffee, hot cider and cocoa nightly for everyone, with special additional dessert trucks on Wednesdays.
Thirty miles northwest of Hollywood, tucked in the Santa Monica Mountains, there’s a strange and shadowy wonderland that everyone’s been whispering about. This year, the immersive walking trail is back, and guests are encouraged to follow the nearly a mile-long trail at King Gillette Ranch, glimmering at every turn with blazing gourds around every corner. This season, the Nights of the Jack creative team has summoned jack o’ lanterns from every mystical sphere and devised a spook-tacular illuminated light show under the autumn sky, and created new carves, new installations, and tons of new photo moments.
"We are thrilled to be celebrating our 5th annual Nights Of The Jack this year in Calabasas," in a joint statement said by Nights of the Jack co-founders, Ben Biscotti and Tony Schubert. "We look forward to entertaining everyone again with an immersive Halloween event that appeals to adults, families, and children of all ages!”
