Catch NY’s Largest Pumpkin Flotilla When Jack O’ Lanterns Take Over Central Park This Month

Central Park’s Halloween Pumpkin Flotilla is back!

On October 30, all are invited to celebrate Halloween in Central Park and watch the Harlem Meer glow with 50 floating jack-o’-lanterns. Those interested in having their pumpkin on the water must bring a pumpkin that weighs about 8 pounds (after it’s already carved), and are asked to drop off their carved creation at 4pm at their designated drop off area by the Dana Discovery Center. The 50 that hit the water are chosen on a first come, first served basis and mini or extra-large pumpkins won’t be accepted.

From then on the evening will be filled with plenty of Halloween activities like pumpkin carving, crafts, a costume parade, and festive pumpkin patch. The Halloween Costume Parade will take place at 6pm with the Pumpkin Flotilla launching at 6:30pm. The event is free for everyone, so there’s no reason not to stop by!
