Every Halloween, the Queens Botanical Garden turns spooky. This year, kids ages 2-9 are invited to come dressed in costume and play in the sprawling pumpkin patch and haunted garden. In the pumpkin patch, they can pick their own pumpkins and then decorate them, make “grass-head monsters,” check out the Halloween-themed animated exhibits, and enjoy some refreshments. Watch out for staff dressed in Halloween garb, and count on a special visit from Count Dracula himself.

The Queens Botanical Garden is an environmentally-conscious green space in the heart of East Flushing. It provides families with a variety of workshops, demonstrations, and educational programs aimed at teaching community members about the value of green awareness.
