The Haunted Pumpkin Garden at NY Botanical Gardens
Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Look for the Great Pumpkin as you wander the spook-tacular Haunted Pumpkin Garden at the New York Botanical Gardens. Pumpkin sculptures of spooky scarecrows, frightening spiders, sneaky snakes, and more designed by artist Michael Natiello await discovery at every turn in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden. Youngsters play inside a ''gourd-geous'' Pumpkin House, put on a scary show at the Pumpkin Puppet Theater, have a ''hoot'' finding out what owls eat by dissecting pellets, and look for wiggly worms under a rotting log. Kids of all ages are encouraged to wear scary costumes for daily parades through the Adventure Garden. Tuesday-Sunday through Oct. 30. All-Garden Pass: $20 adults; $18 children ages 2-12; free for children under 2. To order tickets, click here.
