The Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 08-11-2013 08-11-2013 15 The Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze The tri-state area's biggest, most exciting, most electrifying Halloween event! See more than 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated Jack O' Lanterns in this elaborate walk-through experience. Meander through an historic, 18th-century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - all made of Jack O' Lanterns! Stroll through the Tunnel O' Pumpkin Love and witness the incredible sight of gourd-filled Jack-in-the-Boxes springing up and bouncing around. See slithering ground snakes, a giant spider web, and go gaga over a collection of shrunken Little Monsters. Gaze in amazement at a towering pumpkin bonfire and a working doomsday grandfather clock. A giant sea serpent adds some hiss to the Undersea Aquarium while comical, squash-eating Venus pumpkin traps sprout in the garden. New additions this year to Blaze's perennially popular 'Jurassic Park' include a pterodactyl and a brontosaurus. Gawk at more Jack O' Lanterns than ever before. Plus, making its debut at this year's Blaze, and featuring more than 20 new works from professional artists, the Museum of Pumpkin Art will be the first ever exhibition space devoted to sculptural works inspired by (but not made from) pumpkins. Tens of thousands of visitors experienced last year's sold-out Blaze. Complete with sound effects, elaborate synchronized lighting and the second volume of a brand-new all-original soundtrack by recording artist Richard Christy, this not-to-be-missed spectacle is the area's most innovative Halloween happening. All admissions are by timed ticket only, which must be purchased in advance. Buy tickets online at hudsonvalley.org or call 914-366-6900. October 5-6, 11-14, 17-20, 24-31; November 1-3, 8-11. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=146758 Van Cortlandt Manor true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: Interested in what politics and religion were like in the 1700s? Don't miss Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson. Raising a family in the years after the Revolutionary War, the Van Cortlandts became one of New York?s most distinguished residents. Visitors stroll what was once their property, past the Croton River and heritage gardens, and see that their stone manor and brick ferry house attest to their prominence.

At Van Cortlandt Manor, you can engage in blacksmithing, brick-making, open-hearth cooking, spinning, and weaving, and discuss the Federalist and anti-Federalist debates and the rise of evangelical religion. Enter the manor house and discover the lavish furnishings in their original state from the Colonial and Federal periods. Learn the medicinal and nutritional practices of the time in one of the largest and best-equipped colonial kitchens in America, located downstairs. Visit the Ferry House, a rural tavern that offered food, drink, and lodging to families, and explore the daily issues that were faced by the families of this time. Built prior to 1750, this house contains a broad array of Hudson Valley vernacular furnishings. After discussing the controversy of emancipation, step into the 18th-century flower and vegetable garden to ease your mind.
