All ages

The Harlem Meer comes alive as the sun sets in this annual Halloween favorite. Hand-carved jack-o'-lanterns both spooky and sweet set sail at dusk in New York City's largest pumpkin flotilla.

New this year: Pumpkin owners may retrieve their carved pumpkins at the conclusion of the flotilla at 6:30 pm from the Harlem Meer beach near Fifth Avenue and East 108th Street.

Costume-wearing is encouraged (as is social distancing).
