CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in Croton-on-Hudson is back.
More than 5,000 hand-carved, illuminated jack o’ lanterns make up the elaborate walk-through experience at Van Cortlandt Manor through mid-November, according to a news release. Residents are invited to "meander through an historic, 18th-century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display – all made of jack o’ lanterns," according to the release.
"Stroll through the Tunnel O’ Pumpkin Love and witness the incredible sight of gourd-filled Jack-in-the-Boxes springing up and bouncing around," representatives said in the release. "See slithering ground snakes, a giant spider web, and go gaga over a collection of shrunken Little Monsters. Gaze in amazement at a towering pumpkin bonfire and a working doomsday grandfather clock."
Additions to this year's exhibit include a pterodactyl and brontosaurus, according to the release. The Museum of Pumpkin Art also made its debut at the show this year, which features more than 20 works from professional artists and will be "the first ever exhibition space devoted to sculptural works inspired by (but not made from) pumpkins," according to the release.
Tickets for adults are $16 on weekdays and $20 on Saturday, $12 for children and $16 on Saturdays. Children under 3 and members get in free.
