Oct. 1, 2012 Balloon pilot Matt Williams, left, affixes a jack-o’-lantern mouth on the attraction for Orange County Great Park’s seasonal makeover in Irvine, Calif. The launch of the Halloween-themed balloon starts the fall season at the park that culminates with the Great Park Pumpkin Harvest on Oct. 20. Pilots of the park's 25-passenger helium balloon attached black vinyl tarp pieces to the orange sphere, creating faces on two sides of the inflatable amusement ride.
