Your adventure begins in Manhattan at the Battery Maritime Building where you’ll board our ferry for a few minutes ride through New York Harbor to this truly unique jack o’lantern jaunt here on Governors Island.
Upon arrival on the island, it’s a short walk to the jack o’lantern trail. Along the way, you’ll take in breathtaking nighttime views of the Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty, and you’ll pass the spooky Castle Willams, a former military fort and prison built in the early 1800’s. Once on trail, you’ll see our LED lit jack o’lanterns staged along a festive, paved, tree-lined pathway among the backdrop of centuries old buildings. It’s Halloween in the Harbor, like you’ve never seen it before!
See DOZENS of intricately carved 100+ pound pumpkins on display! These ephemeral works of art are meticulously hand-painted and hand-carved by dozens of artists who put upwards of 20 hours of work into each pumpkin to make them perfect for your enjoyment!
We’re bringing in one of the top pumpkin sculptors in the country to carve a dozen of the most jaw-dropping externally carved pumpkin sculptures you’ll ever see! You’ll find them along the trail submerged in a super-secret-preservation-solution so they’ll be preserved for the entire month of October!
We have teams in place to carve over 1,000 pumpkins for this special event! That’s 20,000 pounds of pumpkins carved for your jack o’lantern enjoyment!
Want to see some of our carvers in action? Check out our live carving demonstrations when you arrive or before you leave. We’ll have a few of our top jack o’lantern artists carving live and answering your carving questions so you can take that knowledge home and make your doorstep jacks the envy of the neighborhood.
