Giant Pumpkin Weekend

Saturday, October 21, 10:00 am–6:00 pm
New York Botanical Garden (2900 Southern Boulevard)
$28, $25/students & seniors, $12/ages 2-12, free/under 2


Monstrous pumpkins from around the country—some weighing in at more than a ton—arrive at the glorious-in-fall Botanical Garden. Meet the growers to learn more about the growing process during Q&A sessions (11 am, 1 pm & 3 pm) and enjoy photo ops with these giant gourds, on display through October 30 along with scarecrows in the children’s garden. Come in costume, decorate a bag and collect wholesome goodies at the Whole Foods Market Trick-or-Treat Trail and meet some creepy creatures.

Also on Sunday.
