What better way to kick off the fall season than hand-carved pumpkins? The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze (otherwise known as “The Blaze”) showcases over 7,000 hand-carved pumpkins across the historic grounds of Van Cortlandt Manor.
The intricately carved pumpkins light the half-mile path with themed scenes while moody music from an original soundtrack plays throughout. See stacks of gourds, hear them sing, and enjoy 45 to 90 minutes of pure fall fun.
