Event description: The creators of the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze present an exciting, new experience: An immersive journey into a springtime garden fantasy featuring colorful creatures and fantastic flowers.

Van Cortlandt Manor springs to life during this incredible nighttime display of sculpture, light, sound, and special effects.

Walk through a rainbow and emerge from a bubbly haze into a dreamland of curiosities spread throughout this historic landscape as far as the eye can see. Reclaimed elements serve as eco-friendly building blocks for intergalactic flora and friendly woodland creatures. Otherworldly mushrooms, floating fairies, and beautiful butterflies are among the thousands of treasures you'll find. State-of-the-art illumination will highlight these incredible works of art and showcase Van Cortlandt Manor's natural landscape and specimen trees.

Featuring all-original sculpture designed and handmade on site by the team that brings you the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze, LIGHTSCAPES is an elegantly enchanting evening event that brightens Van Cortlandt Manor like never before.

Appropriate for all ages.

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.
