Halloween 2014 in New York. Nights & Weekends at The Haunted Pumpkin Garden at NYBG. OCTOBER 18, 24, 25, & 31. Enjoy your days, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
With only two weekends left between now and Halloween, don’t miss out on the special weekend programs in The Haunted Pumpkin Garden. See the amazing zombie carving at our Pumpkin Carving Weekend with Ray Villafane this weekend, or enjoy the following weekend’s Giant Pumpkin Display with the whole family. Complete the experience with the Budding Masters Creepy Pumpkin Carving Adventure exclusively for MasterCard® cardholders.
Spooky Nighttime Adventures are also back this month! Grab a ConEdison flashlight and explore the exhibit as you travel along the Whole Foods Market® Trick-or-Treat Trail after dark. Listen for critters of the night or sit in on a spooky ghost story. Capture a family photo with larger-than-life skeletons and costumed characters. For those who dare, see the giant pumpkin displays illuminated in the darkness and journey along the meandering Mitsubishi Wild Wetland Trail.
