The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze

 


The tri-state area’s biggest, most electrifying fall event returns with more pumpkin power than ever before! Meander through an historic, 18th century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - all made of jack o' lanterns!  

Wander along our main street Pumpkin Promenade and stroll across the Pumpkin Zee Bridge. Around the next corner, discover an awe-inspiring jack o’lantern Statue of Liberty rising to the sky! Twirl with excitement as you witness a fully functioning, 20-foot diameter Pumpkin Carousel. Gaze in wonder at swimming aquatic creatures and a giant Sea Serpent surfacing next to the Croton River. Get mesmerized by a color-changing star show in the Pumpkin Planetarium.

Feel the earth shake as you approach Jurassic Park, where a brand-new herd of pint-sized dinosaurs mingles with an enormous T-Rex, brontosaurus, triceratops, and flying pterodactyl. Squeal with joy as the Circus Train rolls into town with a cast of colorful clowns and awesome animals. Don’t miss Sleepy Hollow Country’s most iconic inhabitant, the Headless Horseman...yes, all made entirely of jack o’lanterns!

Brand new gourd-filled Jack-in-the-boxes spring to life while a giant spider web spins a great #pumpkinblaze photo op.

Come gawk at more jack o'lanterns than ever before. Tens of thousands of visitors experienced last year’s Blaze®, which was SOLD OUT every night! Complete with sound effects, elaborate synchronized lighting and an all-original soundtrack by recording artist Richard Christy, this not-to-be-missed spectacle is the area’s most innovative Halloween happening.

Recommended for all ages.
