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 timed entries at 6:30 and 7:15pm.
And there’s more!
- Enjoy the antics of costumed characters created by Lucretia Novoa and Alice Farley at the Visitor Center.
- Listen in on ghost stories at the Wild Wetland Trail gazebo.
- Decorate a treat bag and go exploring along the Whole Foods Market® Trick-or-Treat Trail.
- Stop by the Clay Pavilions to purchase snacks and beverages.
- Practice the sounds of the night at the Boulders by calling for creatures like owls, bats, toads, and crickets.
- Dig for decomposers or dissect owl pellets at the Discovery Center.
- At the Dodge Activity Center, decorate a gourd and take home carving tips.
