New York's Great Jack-O'-Lantern Blaze Celebrates Halloween Like You've Never Seen It Before

We've never seen so many pumpkins in one place.

Halloween celebrations of epic proportions crop up all over the country once October hits, but none may be more dazzling than the . Held at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, the event celebrates Halloween through its breathtaking displays, made with over 7,000 (!) pumpkins. And though not all the pumpkins are real (some are actually Funkins), each one is, in fact, hand-carved by the event's pumpkin pros.

Visitors can meander through the Pumpkin Planetarium, complete with an overarching ceiling of intricately etched pumpkins. Others can pay a visit to the iconic Headless Horseman, or gawk at the giant spiderweb cast in the shadows of the riverside fields.

Children can also join in on the fun since many of the displays are friendly manifestations of Halloween favorites. Kids will shriek with laughter when they see giant Jack-in-the-boxes spring out from the floor.
