One of the most anticipated events this October is the Magic of the Jack-O'-Lanterns. Imagine the beautiful sprawling acres of Hudson Gardens decorated with 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins. They will also have large pumpkin displays and other jack-o'-lantern pieces. Other illuminated pieces will include a magical carnival, nautical seascape, dinosaurs, and dragons. With so many Halloween events focused on the scary and the macabre, Hudson Gardens offers this event that small kids can enjoy without being terrified.
