Happy Halloween everyone!  Thought I would let you know about this very awesome annual event at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-hudson.  My family and I have been here and it's really amazing!  Once you get through the parking lot and long line to get in, you know right away that it's totally worth it!  You won't know where to look first!

We enjoyed walking through the winding paths on the beautiful (and currently creepy!) grounds.  There are thousands ( I think 4,000!) of illuminated jack o' lanterns on display every where you turn.  This is accompanied by cool music and sounds effects throughout, which adds to the experience.  It must be a super talented group of people who create these works of art.....some of the carvings you will see include sea life, skeletons, huge dinosaurs and more!  There are too many to name!  I don't think my description does this display justice.  You just have to buy tickets and see for yourself before it's sold out!!  Check it out at www.hudsonvalley.org before it's gone for the season.
