The tri-state area’s biggest, most exciting, most electrifying Halloween event returns for a delightful 28 nights in 2014!

See more than 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o' lanterns in this elaborate walkthrough experience. Meander through an historic, 18th-century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display — all made of jack o' lanterns!

Walk through a covered bridge adorned with jack o’lanterns on all sides — even the ceiling! — and emerge to the sight of Sleepy Hollow Country’s most iconic inhabitant, the Headless Horseman! Oooh and ahh at intricate pumpkin portraits of characters from Washington Irving’s famous tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

Tumbling acrobats and circus characters will put a smile on your face, and a special 10th anniversary pumpkin cake will whet your appetite for…more pumpkins!

Witness the incredible sight of gourd-filled Jack-in-the-Boxes springing up and bouncing around. See slithering ground snakes, a giant spider web, and go gaga over a collection of shrunken Little Monsters. Gaze in amazement at a working doomsday grandfather clock.

A giant sea serpent adds some hiss to the Undersea Aquarium while comical, squash-eating Venus pumpkin traps sprout in the garden. Blaze's perennially popular Jurassic Park includes a triceratops, a pterodactyl, a brontosaurus, and a T-Rex!

Come gawk at more jack o'lanterns than ever before. Tens of thousands of visitors experienced last year’s Blaze®, which was sold out EVERY NIGHT! Complete with sound effects, elaborate synchronized lighting and the second volume of an all-original soundtrack by recording artist Richard Christy, this not-to-be-missed spectacle is the area’s most innovative Halloween happening.

Recommended for all ages.

Tickets

Adults, $20; Children 3-17, $16  (Saturdays $25, $20)

Accessibility

Blaze is handicapped accessible, as there are no stairs to negotiate through the installation. However, there are some narrow and slightly sloped brick paths and it is a walk-through experience along uneven, unpaved, soft-surface terrain. Handicapped parking is available, but your car must display a handicapped placard or plate.
