The Haunted Pumpkin Garden is back and spookier than ever!

Experience the thrills and chills of the season with a garden full of intricately carved pumpkin sculptures, bugs, bats, parades, and more.

New this year: the Haunted Pumpkin Garden features creepy-creature encounters every weekend and the largest Spooky Nighttime Adventures trail ever!

On October 19–20, watch master carver Ray Villafane of the Food Network transform humongous pumpkins into unearthly creatures. It's so much fun, it's scary!

Pumpkin sculptures of spooky scarecrows, frightening spiders, sneaky snakes, and more await discovery at every turn in the Everett Children's Adventure Garden. The display includes more than 500 intricately carved pumpkins that are sure to capture your youngster's imagination.

Every day kids can play inside a "gourd-geous" Pumpkin House, put on a scary show at the Pumpkin Puppet Theater, look for wiggly worms, and join a Halloween Parade, while every weekend offers even more treats.
