Having some Halloween fun in NY today for Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns at Old Westbury Gardens
Tonight we'll see over 5,000 hand carved jack o'lanterns. In the pre-show area is just a sample of some of the pumpkins.
While waiting for your time slot to be called, you can watch some of the artists at work carving pumpkins.
Let's go check out some pumpkins!
Some sections along the trail have different themes. Here's Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang.
The detail in the pumpkins is incredible!
Some of your favorite horror movie characters are carved into pumpkins too.

It looks like someone set up a proposal earlier. What a great way to ask!
I don't know how they did it, but there are hundreds of jack o'lanterns in a tree!
No surprise that our President and the nominees were made into jack o'lanterns.
