The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze , a 28-day immersive, family friendly Halloween experience, set on Long Island’s historic 19th century village at the beloved Old Bethpage Village Restoration. This event runs through November 6, 2022. For tickets and event dates, visit www.pumpkinblaze.org. Advance ticket purchases are required.
My family and I loved walking the grounds of the beautiful Old Bethpage Village Restoration grounds after dark. We were in awe of the gorgeous displays and there was no way we could pick a favorite out of the more than 7,000 hand carved Jack O’ Lanterns. One thing I can guarantee you will love the experience of seeing them for yourself this Halloween season.
As you know I love being a Long Islander! We not only enjoyed seeing the incredible artistry that went into making the carved pumpkins but, I loved learning historic facts about Long Island as face boards were displayed along the trails. For example, did you know that the Hewlett House is one of several buildings at the Old Bethpage Village that are supposedly haunted? We loved the displays in front of the Hewlett House.
On display you will see some familiar iconic faces, as well.
