The traditional carving of pumpkins for Halloween has been taken to the next level, with some 5,000 jack-o'-lanterns installed in a dazzling exhibit at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The display, which opened Thursday at the downtown venue's Kentia Hall, are arranged along a walking path and set to music.

Open from 10 a.m. to 10:15 p.m., "RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns" will remain at the convention center through Sunday.
