CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) -- As the Days of Incandescence draw to a close, many came out to Riverfront Park Saturday evening to walk along the Jack-O'-Lantern Trail.  

Many enjoyed food, live music, vendors, and walking tours being offered at the start of the trail. Roughly a dozen jack-o'-lanterns made up the trail and were judged in multiple categories, all a part of the Jack-O'-Lantern Contest. This was the first year Corning's Gaffer District brought the trail to Corning as part of the Days of Incandescence.  

“You can't get this event anywhere else because it's our story to tell,” Meghan O’Toole, The Days of Incandescence Creative Director, said, adding, “The more ways we can get the community involved, the better.”  

The Days of Incandescence tell the story of light surrounding Thomas Edison and Corning's part in developing the light bulb. With the jack-o-lantern fun taking place over the Halloweekend, many came out to the trail decked out in their best costumes. Mikayla Juarez-Hunter was one person who came to celebrate in her headless horseman costume.  

“It's been an interesting night,” Juarez-Hunter said. “Everybody's worried my horse is actually hurt because she looks as though she's been through battle, but she's ok.”  

The Jack-O'-Lantern Trail and other events part of The Days of Incandescence plan to come back even bigger and better in 2023.
