There are all sorts of ways you can get into the spooky Halloween spirit.

You can go pumpkin picking with bae, hit up a scary haunted house or, you know, visit a magical manor that's filled with a mind blowing amount of impressive jack-o'-lanterns.

Allow me to introduce you to the "Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze."

Each year, a team of dedicated artists and volunteers turn the grounds of Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-On-Hudson (a suburb of NYC) into a festive Halloween scene by transforming thousands of pumpkins into spooky jack-o'-lanterns that look lit AF.

The jack-o'-lanterns are used to make a variety of mesmerizing sculptures that range from skeletons and witches to monsters and ghosts that come life once the sun goes down.

If you walk through the flickering pumpkin arch in Van Cortlandt Manor...

...you'll immediately find yourself in a spooky pumpkin-filled world that is like no other.

This mesmerizing manor may look like something straight out of "Halloweentown"...

But don't let the abundance of scary Halloween creatures fool you...

...it's just the annual Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze.

Each year, a team of talented artists painstakingly carve 10,000 pumpkins...

...and turn them into all sorts of next level jack-o'-lanterns in honor of Halloween.

The stunning pumpkin sculptures feature everything from beguiling bee hives...

And frightening flowers...

To spooky spider webs...

...and whimsical witches.

This year's enchanting installation also has a pumpkin rendition of the Tapanzee bridge...

And a headless horseman-inspired covered bridge...

That houses an insane pumpkin planetarium...

...filled with a dazzling display of shooting stars.

Plus, there are also prehistoric pumpkin creatures...

Dreadful monsters from the deep...

Haunted Halloween trains...

...and spine-chilling skeletons that will put the jack-o'-lantern on your front stoop to shame.
