Step Into Fall at the Queens Botanical Pumpkin Fest

Hello, ghouls and gals, it’s that time of year again! While we’re in the full swing of swooning over NYC’s iconic fiery fall foliage, we’re also gearing up for a whole month of fun and spooky activities to get you in the Halloween mood! While haunted houses and ghost walks take over the city, head to Queens for a classic Halloween-inspired day at the pumpkin patch. At the Queens Botanical Garden on October 13, you can soak up all of the crisp fall air, then step outside to join in on the pumpkin fun! Along the way to picking your favorite orange companion, you can hit up local food vendors, check out the beer and wine garden (they have ciders, too!), and relax on the lawn space. Whatever you do, don’t forget to stop by the petting zoo because who would miss the opportunity to pet some cute animals?!
