Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze

September 17 @ 5:00 pm - October 31 @ 10:00 pm

Illuminated jack o'lanterns at Pumpkin Blaze.

Don’t miss the area’s biggest Halloween event! The wildly popular Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze returns in 2021, 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.

New for 2021, gawk at the always-impressive New York City skyline’s pumpkin treatment and take a stroll under the sea in the immersive river display!

Complete with synchronized lighting and an original soundtrack, this one-of-a-kind event is not to be missed!

More than 1,000 volunteers help scoop, carve, and light the pumpkins and every single jack o’lantern is hand-carved on site by a team of professional artists.
