PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — If you haven’t headed to see the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Park Zoo yet this year, Wednesday night won’t be your night.

Organizers say the event is closed tonight (Oct. 28), due to the weather forecast.

As the Pinpoint Weather Team reported, the remnants of Hurricane Patricia are expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds to the area Wednesday night through Thursday morning.

The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular is expected to reopen Thursday, Oct. 29 through Sunday, Nov. 1.

Organizers says any future weather-related changes in the show’s schedule will be posted online.
