Event description: The tri-state area's biggest Halloween event returns for 21 nights. Meander through an 18th-Century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - more than 4,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated Jack O' Lanterns! This elaborate walk-through event features original, atmospheric music, sound effects, and synchronized lighting. See slithering snakes, a giant spider web, an undersea aquarium, super-sized dinosaurs, pirates, ghosts, a mammoth Jack O' Lantern "King Kong" perched on a tall building, and a collection of creatures based on Greek and Roman mythology. Spot spooky sheep skeletons "roaming" the Van Cortlandt grounds and gasp at a cemetery where huge headstones are created from three-ft.-high pumpkins. All admissions are by timed ticket only, which must be purchased in advance at www.hudsonvalley.org or by calling 914-631-8200.

About Van Cortlandt Manor


At Van Cortlandt Manor, explore the stone manor house and brick ferry house, wander through the heritage gardens, and stroll down a quiet country road along the Croton River.

There, you'll experience the domestic life of a patriot family living in the years just after the American Revolution - the New Nation period.
