SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- More thrills and chills await visitors to Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown and Croton-on-Hudson this Halloween thanks to added elements at Horsemans's Hollow as well as new features to the long-running Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze.

Starting Oct. 4 and continuing for a record 28 selected evenings through Nov. 16, The Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze features approximately 5,000 pumpkins, many fused together in elaborate constructions such as life-size dinosaurs and eight-foot-tall working jack-o’lanterns-in-the-box, all lit up throughout the wooded walkways, orchards, and gardens of historic Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson.
