Arguably the area's biggest, most elaborate Halloween happening, the Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze in Westchester is on for 25 nights this year.

See more than 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o' lanterns in this elaborate walk-through experience.

Meander through a 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. 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.
