Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze
September 17 @ 5:00 pm - October 31 @ 10:00 pm
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.
