This past weekend I made my second annual trip out to the Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze in the Hudson Valley of NY. It featured a display of over 4,000 individually hand-carved glowing Halloween pumpkins on display in the form of dinosaurs, a UFO surrounded by aliens (my favorite part this year), pirates, a beehive abuzz with bees, sunflowers, and more. The setting was on the riverside grounds of the historic 18th century Van Cortlandt Manor. It was a cold but thankfully dry night as we wound our way through the spooky sights and sounds, sipping hot apple cider and munching apple cider donuts from a local orchard. Below are some of my photos from the evening.
