The tri-state area’s biggest, most electrifying fall event returns with more pumpkin power than ever before! Meander through an historic, 18th century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - all made of jack o' lanterns!  

Wander along our main street Pumpkin Promenade and stroll across the Pumpkin Zee Bridge. Around the next corner, discover an awe-inspiring jack o’lantern Statue of Liberty rising to the sky! Twirl with excitement as you witness a fully functioning, 20-foot diameter Pumpkin Carousel. Gaze in wonder at swimming aquatic creatures and a giant Sea Serpent surfacing next to the Croton River. Get mesmerized by a color-changing star show in the Pumpkin Planetarium.

Feel the earth shake as you approach Jurassic Park, where a brand-new herd of pint-sized dinosaurs mingles with an enormous T-Rex, brontosaurus, triceratops, and flying pterodactyl. Squeal with joy as the Circus Train rolls into town with a cast of colorful clowns and awesome animals. Don’t miss Sleepy Hollow Country’s most iconic inhabitant, the Headless Horseman...yes, all made entirely of jack o’lanterns!

Brand new gourd-filled Jack-in-the-boxes spring to life while a giant spider web spins a great #pumpkinblaze photo op.

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 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.

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.
