Every fall your Facebook and Instagram feed are probably flooded with amazing pictures from the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze, and you kick yourself for not buying tickets sooner. Don't make that mistake again this year. The thousands of hand-carved Jack O’ Lanterns will be on display in two locations in New York this year, but they're totally worth the drive. 

Rise of the Jack O’ Lanterns is bringing its festival to Old Westbury, NY this October. There'll be more than 5,000 carved pumpkins on display. The event will also include live carving demonstration stations to show how artists create their otherworldly multi-pumpkin structures (like a 40-foot long dragon and life-sized fire truck). RISE features a combination of real and fake pumpkins. Rise of the Jack O’ Lanterns runs October 5-29, and ticket cost depends on date and time. Tickets are limited, so get yours soon!

The Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze takes place at Van Cortlandt Manor in New York. The historical landscape is the perfect backdrop for the 7,000 pumpkins featured in this festival. This amazing walk-through experience features a Statue of Liberty recreation, a model of the Pumpkin Zee Bridge, a pumpkin carousel and more—all made from carved pumpkins! Last year, tens of thousands of people visited the attraction and it sold out every night! Tickets are $22 for adults during the week and $27 on weekends. Tickets for children are $16 for kids ages 3-17 during the week, and $20 on weekends. Children under 3 are free. You can use the Blaze's exclusive Facebook link to snag tickets early.
