The Story of Irish Jack Night Hike

Kateri Environmental Center

160 Conover Road
Wickatunk, NJ 07765

For the twenty-seventh year Kateri will present this enchanting live drama that tells the origins of Halloween. The woodland trails are lit with over 250 Jack O' Lanterns. Visitors walk through the woods and meet the characters along the way as the story unfolds. The event is for children ages 5 through 12 and the accompanying adults. Tickets are $15.00 per person (non-refundable donation) and go on sale on September 10. This event usually sells out so please call soon to reserve a hike time. Please call (732) 946 - 9694 to purchase tickets. Imagine walking through the woods on a crisp autumn night; the trail is lit with hundreds of glowing Jack O' Lanterns. Along the way you stop to meet the characters in a drama that unfolds along the path. Since 1987, children have marveled at the adventures of Irish Jack and the first Jack O' Lantern, an original drama performed along the winding woodland trails at Kateri Environmental Center. This truly innovative approach to both education and theater was developed before Halloween productions were widespread throughout the county. While other Halloween programs are designed to frighten, this is designed to educate and enchant. Many children are already frightened in the woods, without having ghouls and chainsaw-wielding fiends accosting them. We help the children to feel comfortable in the outdoors, and hope to engender a feeling of awe and respect for nature, all while having fun.
