THE BRONX, N.Y. (PIX11) – A new fall attraction at the Bronx Zoo will be making its debut Thursday night.

From the creators of Boo at the Zoo, Pumpkin Nights at the Bronx Zoo boasts a half-mile trail featuring more than 5,000 jack-o’-lanterns carved into animal themes.

The festivities include live pumpkin carving demonstrations, fall treats, games and food trucks. This year’s theme is what animals do after dark.
