The Everett Children’s Adventure Garden gets a spooky Halloween makeover with eye-popping pumpkins, silly scarecrows, and plenty of fun!

Kids can explore more 100 friendly larger-than-life scarecrows set among nearly 1,000 rare and unusual pumpkins and gourds; pot up a spooky black coleus to take home; put on a haunting show with insect, bat, owl, and scarecrow puppets; and investigate a mysterious Victorian playhouse to learn all about bats.

Weekends bring even more fall fun with pumpkin carving demonstrations by some of NYC’s best artists and interactive demonstrations featuring creepy creatures like giant bats and reptiles.
