With people coming up with several creative and safe ways to celebrate Halloween this year, a popular Halloween trail in the US has become a drive-through in order to remain accessible.

The popular “Nights of the Jack,” a seasonal attraction outside Los Angeles, is back as a car trail featuring 4,000 to 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins.

Till last year, visitors were greeted with intricately hand-carved and illuminated jack o’lanterns as they made their way through the half-mile trail around King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas, California on foot.
