(NEW YORK) — One of the biggest Halloween attractions in New York is the Great Jack-o’-Lantern Blaze, which takes over a historic riverside colonial estate.

More than 7,000 hand carved jack-o’-lanterns are set up in theatrical displays across the sweeping grounds of Van Cortlandt Manor in the village of Croton-on-Hudson.

From giant spider webs made out of pumpkins to dinosaur skeletons and court jesters, a whole array of characters comes to life.

There is even a pumpkin planetarium that lights up beneath the starry sky and an “aquarium” with a giant sea monster that appears to be slithering through the grounds.

This year marks the 11th annual opening of the festival with visitors traveling from around the area to see the spectacle.
