Did you know I’m obsessed with Halloween? Well, I am!
This weekend I hit up Old Westbury Gardens and took a journey along its haunted walking trail that showcases more than 5,000 hand-carved and illuminated Jack’O Lanterns! Each unique Jack O’Lantern is a work by a local artist or sculptor who spent anywhere from a few minutes to upwards of 20 hours on the designs.
The pumpkins are arranged according to theme along the trail, which range from larger-than-life safari animals (Tigers and Zebras are arranged out of Jack O’Lantern Patterns, it’s amazing) to celebrities!
There was a Taylor Swift, Royal Couple and even Hillary Clinton and Trump Pumpkins! Or as I like to call him, Trump-kin!
There was even a proposal pumpkin.
There is a spooky soundtrack that’s piped in throughout the walk for the perfect music. Perfect activity for your fall bucket list!
It’s a totally scare-free attraction so it’s great if you have kids or just a scaredy cat on your hand. I love this event, originally out in Los Angeles. Highly recommended! Will definitely do this as an annual tradition. I know they’re just going to keep upping their game!
Tickets are $26 for adults and $22 for kids. They sell out quickly so be sure to get them soon.
*I was a guest of RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns. But I sought them out as research for Halloween articles I write every year. I was not compensated in any way.
