Celebrate Halloween in Central Park with the iconic Halloween Pumpkin Flotilla on the Harlem Meer.

On Thursday, October 26th watch the Harlem Meer light up with floating pumpkins. Feel free to dress for the occasion! According to the official Central Park website, if you would like to see your own jack-o'-lantern floating in the parade, improve your chances by entering a pumpkin that is approximately 8 lbs. After its been carved up (include the lid - think the size of a soccer ball) and don't use any decorations that are unnatural such as paint, glitter, marker, food dye, paper, or plastic. Candles and lights to illuminate the pumpkins will be provided. 

Stop by the information table between 4:00 and 5:30 at the Charles A. Dana Discovery Plaza with your masterpiece and they will let you know where to drop it off. Space on the float is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. 

You can reclaim your pumpkin at the conclusion of the flotilla at 7:00 PM. Pick-up is at the Harlem Meer Beach near Fifth Ave and E. 108th Street.

This event is FREE, open to all ages and tickets are not required. Event details are subject to change based on weather conditions - check Central Park's official website for more information. Happy Halloween!
