A Halloween Wonderland

Television Production and Event Industry veterans Ben Biscotti, Tony Schubert and Bobby Rossi announced today that after its highly successful first year, “Nights of the Jack” will return to King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas from October 3 – November 3. 

Angelenos will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a Halloween wonderland, filled with thousands of hand-carved Jack O’Lanterns at this ranch, which is steeped in history.   Legend has it that in 1824, at the top of the Calabasas grade on the original El Camino Real, a rancher from Oxnard spilled a wagonload of pumpkins while en route to Los Angeles. Sometime later, hundreds of pumpkin seeds sprouted alongside the road.  As a result of the surprising event, the area was dubbed Las Calabasas—”the place where the pumpkins fell.”


Tickets for the once-in-a-lifetime production are on sale now at https://nightsofthejack.com/.  Guests who reserve tickets for opening weekend (October 3-6) will receive a 25% discount. 


Nights Of The Jack is more than your traditional Halloween attraction. Vast grounds of intricately hand-carved and illuminated pumpkins will welcome visitors as they make their way through the half-mile trail around the ranch.  This year, in partnership with Nickelodeon, the event will feature a special SpongeBob SquarePants installation, which brings to life fan-favorite SpongeBob characters and iconic Bikini Bottom places through an illuminated pumpkin display, as well as an Are You Afraid of the Dark? pre-show tent space to include twisted surprises, along with an interactive augmented reality experience.  The grounds will also feature a live pumpkin carver, gift shop, food trucks from some of Los Angeles’ most popular dining destinations, “The Spookeasy Bar” @ Nights of the Jack, which will serve traditional alcoholic beverages as well as specially crafted Halloween cocktails, and tons of other “Instagrammable” moments for all to enjoy!

“We are thrilled that Nights of the Jack will make its return this Halloween season with new brand partnerships and exciting activations,” said Nights of the Jack founding team members Ben Biscotti, Tony Schubert, and Bobby Rossi in a joint statement. “We look forward to delivering another unforgettable experience to the greater Los Angeles area!”
