Jack O’Lantern Blaze to light for first time on Long Island

The annual Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze comes to Long Island for the first time this year.

The event, being held at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration through Nov. 1, features thousands of jack o’lanterns that will create Long Island-themed sculptures like the Montauk Lighthouse and many other creations.

The original Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is also being held through Nov. 21 at Van Cortland Manor in Croton-On-Hudson, where it’s been presented for the last 16 years.

Because of COVID-19 safety protocols, there will be no food or beverages sold and everyone over the age of 2 must wear a face covering.
