(WRIC/ABC) — The Great Jack-o’-Lantern Blaze is one of the biggest Halloween attractions in New York. The display takes over a historic riverside colonial estate.
More than 7,000 hand carved jack-o’-lanterns are set up in theatrical displays all over the sweeping grounds of Van Cortlandt Manor in the village of Croton-on-Hudson, New York.
From giant spider webs made out of pumpkins to dinosaur skeletons and court jesters, a whole array of characters comes to life.
There’s even a pumpkin planetarium that lights up beneath the starry sky. Another cool feature: an ‘aquarium’ with a giant sea monster that appears to be slithering through the grounds.
This year marks the 11th annual opening of the festival with visitors traveling from around the area to see the spectacle.
