"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.

From The Blast:

'SpongeBob SquarePants' Bikini Bottom Recreated In Amazing Pumpkin Display


Forget a pineapple under the sea ... because right now it's all about the pumpkins!

Nickelodeon's "SpongeBob SquarePants" was just given the Halloween treatment by some skilled artists who recreated the famous city of Bikini Bottom with jack-o'-lanterns.


The exhibit is being featured at Nights of the Jack in Calabasas, CA.

Visitors to the event get to enjoy an interactive Halloween experience featuring intricately hand-carved and illuminated pumpkins spread throughout the sprawling King Gillette Ranch.

The half-mile trail features dinosaurs, sea life, and famous movie monsters, but the biggest attraction this year is definitely the SpongeBob scene.


Nights of the Jack teamed up with Nickelodeon and recreated the iconic Bikini Bottom, which even features the Krusty Krab ... with Mr. Krabs nearby keeping watch over his beloved Krabby Patty recipe while Plankton works on his latest evil plan.


Even Squidward got into the Halloween spirit, and can be seen near his tiki home.



SpongeBob's pet snail, Gary, is featured alongside Sandy the squirrel, who is fully clad in her diving suit.


A trip to Bikini Bottom wouldn't be complete without paying a visit to Patrick Star, and he can be seen jumping for joy among a giant cluster of pumpkins.


Are You Afraid of the Dark?


"SpongeBob SquarePants" isn't the only Nickelodeon show being celebrated at Nights of the Jack, as the classic horror show, "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" was also brought to life.

To celebrate the upcoming movie, Nickelodeon put together a spooky tent filled with "twisted surprises," and an interactive experience to make guests an official member of The Midnight Society.

Nights of the Jack runs from October 3 - November 3.
