There’s A Glowing Pumpkin Trail Coming To New York And It’ll Make Your Fall Magical
We still may be technically enjoying summer for the next few weeks, but that doesn’t mean that things aren’t already starting to feel like fall. Between kids heading back to school this week and stores putting out their autumn-themed items, we’ve got fall on our minds! If you’re wondering how you can enjoy the Halloween spirit before the holiday actually arrives, then you’re going to want to think about visiting New York’s only glowing pumpkin trail – it’s guaranteed to blow your mind.
Taking over the Van Cortlandt Manor, this year marks the 7th annual Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in Croton-on-Hudson!
With tickets and time slots available from September 28th through November 24th, it generally takes most visitors about an hour to explore this glowing pumpkin trail.
Each year the pumpkin displays at this event get even more extravagant, with the trail taking you through a Pumpkin Planetarium.
As you walk through the planetarium you'll look up and see color-changing illuminated pumpkins that are all carved out differently.
With photography and videos allowed at the blaze (except for tripods and monopods), you'll see lots of eager New Yorkers photographing these magical glowing pumpkins in all their glory.
As you walk along the pumpkin trail, you'll find a true variety of structures - from kid-friendly trains made out of pumpkins to spooky ghosts that might send a shiver up your spine.
You'll also quickly notice familiar sights like a pumpkin Statue of Liberty and the blaze's Pumpkin Zee Bridge that will both leave you in awe.
And it's always quite the experience to see the spinning Pumpkin Carousel that looks too marvelous to be real.
This year visitors can expect to see over 7,000 illuminated pumpkins, a fall extravaganza unlike any other in our state.
With tickets going on sale to the public on September 4th, you'll want to book a date to see The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze before this grand event sells out.
If I haven't already stressed it enough, this is one event that sells out quickly and is known to be a bit crowded at times. If you're thinking about wanting to attend The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze this year, you'll want to act on buying tickets sooner than later to make sure you actually cross this place off of your bucket list.
