Get Into The Holiday Spirit With An Electrifying Halloween Light Display, The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze

The holiday season is upon us all, and there are many ways to celebrate! Though Christmas is still a couple months away, some of us are already looking forward to cruising local neighborhoods to marvel at lovely lighted house displays. But who says gorgeous light displays are only for December?

One neighborhood in New York has repurposed Halloween as an opportunity to create seriously impressive and beautiful light displays composed entirely of jack o’ lanterns!

The grounds of Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-On-Hudson, a suburb of New York City, bedecks itself with almost 10,000 jack o’ lanterns. Each jack o’ lantern is meticulously carved by artists and volunteers and are crafted into mesmerizing artistic displays for anyone to come see and get in the Halloween spirit!

The Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze, as it’s called by the organizers, is an annual tradition and tops itself each year. The pumpkins are carved and then placed in ornate displays lit with LED lights to dazzle visitors.

Jack o’ lanterns are organized into simple displays of single ornately carved pieces, and are also stacked and architecturally placed to form multi-pumpkin sculptures featuring skeletons, beehives, dinosaurs, spider webs, witches, spooky monsters, and probably most impressively this year, a headless-horseman inspired covered bridge.

Once visitors walk inside the covered bridge, they are treated to a pumpkin planetarium made of pumpkins backed with pulsating LED lights, complete with shooting stars.
