But make your plans early, because the venue is sure to be packed with ghouls and ghosts looking to take advantage of dancing, special performances, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

The events run year-round, so you won’t have to make special plans for a single evening. But with it being the Halloween season, the sooner you book, the better of you’ll be.

The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze
This year, Hudson Valley hosts the tri-state area’s biggest Halloween-inspired event at The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze in the city of Croton-on-Hudson, NY. With hundreds of carved pumpkins lighting up the area’s bridges and walkways at night, along with carnival rides and fun activities for kids during the day, the event offers a tame-but-scary getaway from the hustle and bustle of New York City. We should also mention this is roughly the same area where the Headless Horseman is still haunting the woods to this day, so stay alert for any suspicious horse riders while you’re there.
Put together a group, a date or plan to take the family to this year’s NYC Halloween attractions by way of Luxor Limo, so you can enjoy the spooky entertainment while we take care of everything else. Just book a ride, pick your preferred vehicle, and we’ll make sure your ride is smooth and comfortable from start to finish.
