America truly loves Halloween – why? No one knows… but one thing is for sure, they beat Brits hand down for pumpkin creativity. While adults and children are preparing their costumes and trick or treat goodies, the annual Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze in New York on now until November 11 sees 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins in a elaborate walk-through experience. The large-scale installation pieces, crafted by teams of professional artists, used multiple stacked pumpkins in their creation with towering lit installations scattered throughout the landscape that included massive dinosaurs, a tree-suspended pterodactyl and a doomsday clock.
