Visitors to Van Cortlandt Manor enjoy a dramatic display of 5,000 hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns. The historic site's sloping brick paths and gardens are transformed into a Halloween haven, complete with a Tunnel O’ Pumpkin Love, ghosts, animals, and dinosaurs—all made of fiery carved gourds. For details, visit Historic Hudson Valley.
