BELMONT, N.C. – Parents looking for a family friendly Halloween event will be pleased to know that Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is holding Bootanical on Oct. 27 and 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
With this event, the Garden celebrates Halloween in the daylight with nothing scary to worry the little ones who want to enjoy the friendlier side of this holiday. Favorite fall icons like pumpkins, gourds, maize, mums and other plants-based elements serve as the inspiration for activities during Bootanical.
Participants can enjoy the Garden maze, spooky story-time, plant-based Halloween activities and ghoulish games. In addition, kids can look forward to nature-based scavenger hunts that may feature plants like pumpkin on a stick, bat faced cuphea plant and creepy eyeball plant.
The Garden will continue its Fall with a Flourish season that includes special autumn-themed photo vignettes complete with pumpkins and pine-straw bales offering opportunities for charming family pictures as well. Children wearing costumes will receive a 50% discount with a paying adult.
