Downtown’s pumpkin patch

Join a gaggle of scarecrows, straw creatures and gorgeous mums at the second annual Pumpkinville. This year’s fantastic festival kicks off this Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013, and it open daily through Oct. 31, so you can enjoy all of the fall festivities. The Children’s Garden will be transformed into a fun, wonderland, complete with a hay bale maze, arts and crafts activities, games, storytelling and more – perfect not-too-spooky fun for kids and kids at heart.

But wait, it gets better. Opening day (Oct. 12) will be filled to the brim with great activities like a corn toss game (bring it on), bobbing for apples (who doesn’t love that?), pumpkin decorating (yes, please), cider pressing (mmm), story times (you’ve got our attention), corn husk doll making (you can’t do that every day), tasty treats (more yum!), evening ghost stories (spooky, scary!) and more!

There’s more, and we’re sure that when you see this sight, you’ll say “WOW” twice (front and backwards, of course). Artist Hugh Meade of Oddfab Design Lab has created a centerpiece for this year’s Pumpkinville – a 9-foot-tall owl constructed of straw and other natural materials.

And one last thing we want to make sure you mark down on your calendar – the Pumpkinville Halloween Party. On Saturday, Oct. 26 from 5 to 8 p.m., gather at the Gardens for “A Woodland Adventure” where you can sample spooky witches' brew and other haunted treats and take part in a variety of fun games and activities while jamming out to seasonal favorites like “Monster Mash.” Children and adults are encouraged to come dressed in costumes to really make the party spooktacular! The party is free for members, and is $10 per child and $8 per adult for non-members.

Drilling down the details:
Dates: Oct. 12-31, 2013
Hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Sun.-Thur.); 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Fri. & Sat.)
Cost: Free for members of the Myriad Gardens; $5 per child; $3 per adult
