Pumpkin Walk – Fri 10/26 & Sat 10/27

October 26 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

$5 – $10

Once a year, during the weekend before Halloween, Boxerwood Nature Center opens the Play Trail after sundown for a Pumpkin Walk. Last year, this special event drew hundreds of young families to the nature center, where children and parents made their merry way around the Play Trail, aglow with some 100 whimsical jack ‘o lanterns carved by staff and community volunteers. This year’s event will take place over two nights, Friday October 26th and Saturday, October 27th for all to enjoy.

$10/family for non-members and $5/family for Boxerwood members

We need your help to create a Fairy Forest full of Jack O’Lanterns.
Join the fun. Carve pumpkin(s) at home and drop them off at the kiosk before noon Thursday & Friday, October 25 & 26. Then, attend the Pumpkin Walk to see all the Jack O’Lanterns! Markers will be available at drop off to put your name on your pumpkin(s). If you would like your pumpkin back you may collect it on Sunday the 28th.
Please help!  The more pumpkins – the better the experience!
