Bursting with elaborate designs and kaleidoscopic color arrangements, this exhibit in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at The New York Botanical Garden will delight nature lovers and enchant guests of all ages who love the beauty of nature. With the theme Key West Contemporary, you can step out of the bustling city and straight into the Florida Keys, where the dramatic beauty of a flourishing tropical garden is amplified by vibrant architecture that reflects this particular island's charm and ambience. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory's sprawling glasshouse galleries are transformed into a modernist Key West estate garden, where an effusion of orchids -- including Vanda (rainbow orchids), Dendrobium (cane orchids) and Cymbidium (Asian corsage orchids) -- bloom among serene geometric reflecting pools, soaring angular pergolas and sleek benches.

This event was good for younger children...I'd say up to around age 8. I was disappointed that the majority of the pumpkins were styrofoam and not actually carved. They did have lots of interesting characters made out of them though. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and couldn't have been nicer.
This event runs from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, with times entries at 6:30 and 7:00pm.
And there’s more!
Enjoy the antics of entertainers welcoming you to the evening at the Visitor Center.
Pick up your treat bag at the Reflecting Pool and decorate it with leaf rubbings.
Go trick-or-treating along the Whole Foods Market® Trick-or-Treat Trail for tasty treats.
Stop by the Discovery Plaza to purchase snacks and beverages. Call creatures of the night — owls, bats, toads, and crickets — at the Boulders.
Dig for Decomposers at the Discovery Center. Dissect owl pellets in the Discovery Center to find out what they eat for dinner.
At the Dodge Activity Center, decorate your gourd and take home carving tips.
Visit the giant pumpkin displays and walk out along the Mitsubishi Wild Wetland Trail — if you dare!
Listen in on spooky short stories at the Wild Wetland Trail gazebo.
