This year I decided to check out something different for Halloween Weekend…and I am sure glad that I did! I attended an AMAZING event called ‘The Great Pumpkin Blaze’! As you can clearly see from the photos this was no small event…it was, in fact, nothing short of stunning. I cannot even begin to imagine how many pumpkins were actually used in the blaze (which took at least 45 minutes to stroll through); however, it had to be in the tens-of-thousands! Also amazing to me (and many of my fellow pumpkin viewers) was the fact that most of the pumpkins were lit by actual burning candles! It must have taken half of the day just to light them all! Every picture that you will see in this post is made up of the most beautifully carved pumpkins…check it out!
A birthday cake!!!
Notice the inscription on this grandfather clock… “The End is Near!” By the way…that pendulum was actually swinging back and forth!
I certainly hope that this didn’t just swim in from the Hudson River!
There are several awesome pumpkin blazes that you can attend throughout the NYC-Metro area. To look for an event in your area, search “Pumpkin Blaze” on-line!
