Westchester 2013 Bucket List: The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze

Van Cortlandt Manor’s beautifully carved and illuminated pumpkins are a seasonal highlight for all ages.

Possibly the hottest ticket in town each October is the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor, when thousands—yes, thousands—of intricately carved and illuminated pumpkins are on display, posing in fields, hanging from trees, perched on the porch, mounted on stakes. You don’t even need to bring a kid along to enjoy—it’s as much of a spectacle for adults. Reservations are a must and tickets sell out fast. Don’t miss it.
