We are going to kick off a new family-fun event at the Garden, Bootanical on Oct. 30 and 31 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Many of the familiar sights of Halloween include pumpkins, scarecrows, and spiders which are based in nature, and form the basis for this fun new daytime event. Families will get a chance to work together to stuff and hang a scarecrow, pot up a spider plant, and mix up a batch of their own unique “bootanical” potion using dried herbs, and take a tour through the Garden in all its autumn brilliance. We have special autumn-themed photo vignettes that feature pumpkins and hay bales which make for a perfect fall family picture.
We encourage children to come dressed in their favorite costume and if they do they will receive a 50% discount with a paying adult.
Bootanical, part of a the Garden’s Fall with a Fourish celebration, is free with Garden admission. Carriage rides will be available for an additional fee through Southern Breezes, weather permitting. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase from Karen Warren Catering. To see a menu for Bootanical just visit our event listing at www.DSBG.org.
Members are free, $12 adults, $11 seniors 60+, and $6 children 4-12. The Garden is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week. For more information call (704) 825-4490 or log on to www.DSBG.org.
