View thousands of hand-carved, illuminated jack-o'-lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path within Old Westbury Gardens.

RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns is returning in October 2019 to Old Westbury Gardens. This year they have more than 5,000+ hand-carved illuminated jack o'lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path. 

All of the featured jack o'lanterns on display are carved by professional artists using real pumpkins. Previously, they've had thousands of jack o'lanterns on the ground, some as as much as 40-feet back from the walking path, causing most to be displayed too low and too far back to really appreciate. This year, they're changing all that. They're bringing most of the jacks within 6 feet of the trail and we're elevating them to various heights so they'll be at eye level or higher for visitors.

In addition to live carving demonstrations, animated and 3D pumpkins, RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns is also offering baked goods exclusively from Long Island bakeries, including cider donuts and hot apple cider from the famous Jericho Cider Mill.
