The Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor was absolutely beautiful. Thousands of pumpkins lit up. It will definitely be a yearly event for our family.
We also enjoyed our traditional Halloween visit to Clinton Place in Hackensack, NJ. There you will find beautiful old homes on both sides of the long, closed street that decorate and go all out for Halloween, it's a blast. Some original scary stuff and some really cute things for the younger kids as well...like The Great Pumpkin, Wizard of Oz and Nightmare Before Christmas. If you're in Northern NJ you should really check it out. Link to pictures below.
