More than 5,000 jack-o'-lanterns on display at Rhode Island zoo

Volunteers carve pumpkins

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - More than 5,000 jack-o'-lanterns are delighting children at a Rhode Island zoo.

Retired postal worker John Reckner organized about 40 carvers to work on thousands of pumpkins at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.

They'll go through about 20,000 pumpkins this season.

The jack-o'-lanterns are replaced as they go bad.

The zoo's Jack-o'-lantern Spectacular runs through Nov. 4.
