The Haunted Pumpkin Garden at The New York Botanical Garden is sure to thrill and chill visitors from Saturday, Sept. 20 through Halloween, Oct. 31.
The Haunted Pumpkin Garden is open all day for exploration, with guided activities from 1:30-5:30pm weekdays and 10am-5:30pm weekends. Each day, children can play inside a "gourd-geous" Pumpkin House; go on a scavenger hunt for fall fruits; look for wiggly worms under a rotting log; put on their own performance in the Pumpkin Puppet Theater; read spooky stories; and watch pumpkin seeds sprout in a germination chamber. On weekends, children can read spooky stories and enjoy Halloween parades that travel throughout the Children's Adventure Garden.
