Going out of your gourd looking for something to do with your children? Trying to carve out some time for family fun? We’ve got just the thing. Halloween’s just a couple weeks out, and kids are getting excited about the big night. Suit up your young goblins and head for the Haunted Pumpkin Garden at the New York Botanical Garden (2900 Southern Boulevard in the Bronx). There’s no better way to get in the Halloween spirit!

Haunted Pumpkin Garden 1

Rhapsody in Orange

Put boredom in an early grave with a trip to this silly, spooky squash spectacular. The creative use of pumpkins will delight both children and adults with fascinating (and in some cases, seemingly gravity defying) displays. The New York Botanical Garden receives new shipments of pumpkins every week, so there’s always a fresh design on display.

The Haunted Pumpkin Garden has a fabulous array of activities for children, and adults, too. Go on a spooky night time adventure, or learn more about the creepy creatures of Halloween. Kids can play in a pumpkin house, and be part of a parade to show off their costumes! There’s even a Pumpkin Puppet Theater where kids can put on their own performances.

Advanced Pumpkin Carving: A Skill for Life

This weekend, you can see Master Pumpkin Carver Ray Villafane work his magic on some unsuspecting pumpkins. Even better, you can learn some of his tricks for making the best jack-o-lanterns on the block with his one-day workshop! Be sure to make a reservation for this terrific event.

Seastreak is far better than a certain infamous pumpkin coach. We’ve got modern catamarans with indoor and outdoor seating, a full-service bar, and we don’t turn back into a squash at midnight. (It would make us late in the morning.) Ride with us and see why we’re the best!


Sea you soon!
