I was lucky enough to win 4 tickets from Lohud newspaper to the Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor at Croton-on-Hudson, for winning a Halloween-themed photo contest. What else is spookier than a foggy forest? Click for some foggy delight (mine is the second photo).
I was impressed by the long walk through out paths lines with thousands of intricately carved pumpkins and the soft new age music was pretty relaxing. The night was finished off with some hot apple cider and some non-authentic apple cider doughnuts (read - Entemann's). We were a little disappointed with that, but this isn't a food blog.
Here are some photos from the night!
