Event description: THE HAUNTED PUMPKIN GARDEN FOR OCT. 31 HAS BEEN CANCELED. Experience the thrills and chills of the season with a garden full of intricately carved pumpkin sculptures, bugs, bats, parties, and parades. The haunted world of pumpkin sculptures offers plenty of hands-on fun each day - play inside the Pumpkin House, put on a scary show at the Pumpkin Puppet Theater, go on a parade, and have a 'hoot' learning about owls. On October 20-21, master carver Ray Villafane of Food Network fame transforms humongous pumpkins into zombies and other unearthly creatures.

There's plenty of hands-on fun each day--play inside the Pumpkin House, put on a scary show at the Pumpkin Puppet Theater, go on a parade, and have a 'hoot' learning about owls. Special events run throughout the month. Through Oct. 31 in the Everett Children's Adventure Garden.
