Fall is a season to celebrate as cooler weather and autumn colors sweep across the Carolinas. Join the Garden for activities and crafts inspired by the season and upcoming holiday, Halloween! Children will have the opportunity to participate in a costume parade in Lost Hollow, the children’s garden, at both noon and 2 p.m. They will also create not-so-scary crafts including spidey hats, potion pouches, decorated mini pumpkins and more. Storytime, a scavenger hunt, face painting, cornhole and other activities will be available.
Live music can be heard from 12 to 2 p.m. and live entertainment will be provided by the Le Croix Dance Company on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 12, 1 and 2 p.m. Carriage rides will be available for $6 per adult and $4 per child. The giant trebuchet will be out for Punkin Chunkin’ at select times. Lunch items from both The Garden Store and a food truck onsite, snacks, treats and beverages will be available.
All children wearing costumes are admitted FREE! Bootanical is free with general Garden admission. Garden Members are admitted free.
