We finally went to see the infamously sold out Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in the village of Croton-on-Hudson. It’s practically impossible to get tickets, but John made it happen this year (in case this is the last Halloween in NYC). We left work early to hit the road at 5:30 pm to make our 7:00 pm time slot and ALMOST made it without Stella getting carsick. Almost.

We walked across the Pumpkin Zee Bridge (Ava's favorite) and saw a pumpkin carousel, giant sea serpent, pumpkin planetarium, and jurassic park, among a dozen other very impressive pumpkin displays.

Stella was NOT impressed but Ava seemed to enjoy it. I think the trip was really for me tho.
