Why do we have such a thing?
Well, Croton is in 'Sleepy Hollow Country' and Sleepy Hollow is the home of the Headless Horseman. It is right down the road from us.
(And he rides through the countryside every Halloween)....thus, we are a natural for Jack O'Lanterns.....
Every year the display of this electrifying Halloween event gets better - it now features more than 4,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated jack o’ lanterns.
Meander through slithering snakes, shrunken heads, a giant spider web, an undersea aquarium, super-sized dinosaurs, pirates, ghosts, plus a mammoth exhibition of mummies and a pyramid...straight out of ancient Egypt - all made of jack o' lanterns!
