Halloween on the Harlem Meer: Pumpkin Flotilla

Thu Oct 27, 2022
4:00pm to 7:00pm ET
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.

Drop off your pumpkin between 4pm and 5:30pm. Be sure to review the guidelines for weight and decoration. Space is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Pumpkins will be accepted until 5:30 pm or until all spots are filled, whichever comes first.

 Pumpkin owners may retrieve their carved pumpkins at the conclusion of the flotilla at 7pm from the Harlem Meer beach near Fifth Avenue and East 108th Street.

Costume-wearing is encouraged.
