I SPY: Blaze 2014

Sep 4, 2014

Want a good kick off to Halloween?  The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze will get you in the mood for sure.  This is a annual installation at Van Cortland Manor, in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.  Just look at these pictures.  I have never seen pumpkins so intricately carved - have you?  Makes my pumpkin carving skills look so juvenile in comparison!  Really SPECTACULAR art.  There are more then 5,000 illuminated hand carved jack o'lanterns on display that you can see up close, as you wander through a twinkle lit, 45 minute long pathway, while synchronized eerie sound effects and mood lighting plays in the background, that leads you past a haunted house, with a grave yard in the front lawn that has massive oblong pumpkins as tomb stones.  Got to also see the Tunnel O' Pumpkin Love, life size Dinosaurs, blown up Spiders, Medusas, King Kong, and the list goes on and on.  All formed by what else? PUMPKINS!  So many mind blowing creations by such talented artists.  It's really COOL.  Words can not describe how visually incredible this event is.  You just have to go and see it with your own eyes!  Every year new creations get added to the exhibit, so it never gets old.  This year is their 10th anniversary, with new special surprises which will for sure be awesome.  I'm excited and can't wait to see!

I have been lucky to attend a few times, and seen the evolvement and additions over the years.  It never stops amazing me.  Here are some wonderful images I found on Cielito Vivas The 'Post-Ups' blog to allure you to come along and check out Blaze.








Fun for all ages, and totally worth blowing over your kids bed time 1x a year!  Tickets are on sale now to the public.  The event is only on for 25 days starting October 4 till November 9.  Tickets get sold out fast.  What you waiting for?  Purchase your tickets now.  I just did!
