Life Size Dinosaurs Carved From Pumpkins For Halloween

These amazing life-sized dinosaurs are entirely carved out of pumpkins. One of the most celebrated events of the year takes place around Halloween at the Van Cortland Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. Thousands of incredible jack o’lantern carvings are lit up in a spooky exhibition of giant spiders, flying pumpkin ghosts, skulls, skeletons, bats and other hair-raising entities, all from pumpkins. This year the dinosaurs stole the show.

These extinct creatures are laid out on an empty field so as not to overshadow other equally brilliant but smaller creations. They certainly are frightening yet artistic pieces. These decorations along with the creepy background music, add to the terrifying atmosphere. This very popular event has been visited by 65,000 people last year and more are expected to take part in this year’s hour-long tour of frightening beauty.
