Don’t miss the area’s biggest Halloween event! The wildly popular Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze returns for 49 evenings, including Halloween night! It features over 7,000 hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins set against the mysterious backdrop of Van Cortlandt Manor’s 18th-century buildings and riverside landscape.
Witness a windmill go round and round (with pumpkins all around). Visit the brand-new medieval castle and listen for the who-whooo…a flock of jack o’lantern owls is standing guard! Star cross your selfie game with Instagrammable-scale signs of the zodiac. Stroll across the Pumpkin Zee Bridge, watch the Pumpkin Carousel twirl, gaze in wonder at swimming aquatic creatures and a giant Sea Serpent. Get mesmerized by a color-changing star show in the Pumpkin Planetarium. Discover an awe-inspiring jack o’lantern Statue of Liberty rising to the sky! Complete with synchronized lighting and an original soundtrack, this innovative spectacle is not-to-be-missed!
