The annual Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular opened at dusk on Thursday in Iroquois Park, where visitors toured the artistically carved, illuminated pumpkins on display along a quarter- mile hiking trail in the woods near the Iroquois Amphitheater.
This year’s theme, “America The Beautiful,” is set to music in scenes dedicated to states and current events.
Erika Nelson, community relations administrator with Louisville Metro Parks & Recreation, said with 3,528 visitors, Thursday could be the best opening night to date.
The Jack O’ Lantern Spectacular runs through Nov. 6, and is open from dusk until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from dusk until midnight Friday and Saturday.
Tickets range from $9 to $15, with discounts for seniors and children 12 and under. Proceeds benefit the Louisville Parks Foundation, which raises money for Metro Parks projects.

The Muhammad Ali Center for the Associated Press, 2012

It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Muhammad Ali Saturday morning. My love and condolences go out to his family, friends and the people who worked with him, along with the public at large. He was an international icon loved and respected by all, and Louisville will miss him the most. But his presence will last forever.
While I’ve never been introduced to Muhammad Ali or had my photo taken with him, I’ve been near him on many occasions on assignment for the AP or shooting the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards for the Ali Center. Many of my AP file photos from a 2012 assignment are being used now.
Here’s the gallery I sent at that time.
Rest in peace, Ali.
