Kids are heading back to school, pumpkin spice *everything* is just around the corner, and we are recruiting volunteers for Roger Williams Park Zoo famous Jack O' Lantern Spectacular! Open shifts are available every night of the week from 10/5-11/4. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for multiple nights if possible!

To make things even more exciting this year we have some extra special additions to Wednesday and Thursday of each week… theme nights! Each week we will be featuring a different theme to add to the magical experience of Jack O’ Lantern. These nights include Fairytale night, Wizarding World night, and Superheroes! Come hang out with the characters and create an atmosphere that our guests won’t soon forget! As always, volunteers are encouraged to dress up and show their creativity! (No masks please).

Please arrive no later than 4:45pm and stay until about 10pm (11pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays). As always, tricks (flash light & reflective vest) and treats (hot chocolate, coffee, and candy) will be provided; a fridge and microwave are available for use, and you will be able to rest in peace (get a break) during your shift. The volunteer duties may include keeping the guests from turning into zombies (directing visitors), the line from getting too scary (monitoring the trail), and hunting paranormal disturbances (asking people to turn off the flash on their cameras). Each volunteer will receive 2 complimentary tickets for the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular (to use any night) and the zoo's undead (I mean undying) gratitude.
