World's Largest Jack O'Lantern

A million-gallon gas storage tank becomes the world's largest Jack O' Lantern.

The ConocoPhillips refinery pumpkin patch is in Wilmington, California.Since 1952, visiting the great pumpkin has remained a popular Halloween event in Los Angeles' South Bay area.

Preparing Smilin' Jack for his annual appearance requires more than 100 gallons of orange, black and white paint. Refinery engineers say if the giant jack–o–lantern were filled with pumpkin, there would be enough to make 26,800,000 pumpkin pies.
