Halloween at the Garden means learning all about pumpkins and squashes while having fun!

You’ll know absolutely everything there is to know about the gourd family! At the Squash Kiosk, little ones, fat ones, round or warty ones – each one will be exercising its ingenuity to make the best impression. And at the pumpkin-decorating contest, the good witch Esmeralda, invites you to tour roughly 800 squashes and pumpkins decorated by students and visitors.

You can visit her new house, too! A friendly witch and lots of small wild creatures make perfect roommates. This half-plant, half-animal structure was designed by some wacky architects. Who built all those hidey-holes? And who lives there with Esmeralda, the witch? Come meet her and hear about her friends the crickets, mice and spiders.

Don’t leave the Garden without popping in to see the Little Monsters Courtyard, where all-new play structures await.

The Great Pumpkin Ball takes place daily, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
