Spooky Pumpkin Garden, the premier fall event at New York Botanical Garden, offers fun for the entire family.
During the day, explore Everett Children’s Adventure Garden. There, you’ll find a bounty of gourdes and scarecrows along its twisting, turning trails. In addition, attend pumpkin carving demonstrations or join a pumpkin carving competition!
For a bit of real life scares, don’t miss Meet Creepy Creatures at the Clay Family Picnic Pavilion. On Saturdays and Sundays, October 12th through 27th, snakes, bats and other creepy creatures go on display.
After dark, get your spook on with Spooky Pumpkin Nights. Dress in your scariest costumes and wander the darkened trails, filled with skeletons and other creepy creatures of the night. Perhaps you’ll pick up some wholesome treats along the way.
And don’t forget, on October 26th and 27th, see the award-winning, enormous pumpkins on display from the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth. Yes, that’s a real thing. Last year’s prize winner weighed more than 2,500 hundred pounds!
If Spooky Pumpkin Garden can’t get you into the Halloween spirit, nothing can. So don’t miss it!
