Every year at at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-On-Hudson, somewhere around 5,000 pumpkins get transformed into Jack O' Lanterns, turning the classic fall landscape into a magical twinkling tableau. The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze goes on for 25 nights (there are two more weekends left), and this year's hand-carved creations include dinosaurs, witches, skeletons, snakes, spider webs, sea serpents, and a Tunnel O’ Pumpkin Love that you can walk through! Not to mention a towering pumpkin bonfire and a working doomsday grandfather clock and are those pumpkins dangling from all the trees? Yes, yes they are.
The whole thing is pretty spectacular, and because of that, it sells out quickly—for the remaining weekends, buy tickets here. And in the meantime, click through for a look through the lens of Joshua Bousel, who shot this year's event. [h/t/ Colossal and Instagram]
