Great Pumpkin Fest
Time: 12:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Good for: Family
The largest Halloween celebration for families in Central Massachusetts, Great Pumpkin Fest lasts for just one day. The museum's 55-acre property -- specially decorated for the event -- is the setting for an exciting line-up of Halloween fun, including a stunning display of 1,500 carved jack o' lanterns, which are illuminated after dark.
Throughout the day and evening, the museum and grounds will be open for exploring exhibits, visiting animals, watching free digital planetarium shows, and enjoying free wagon rides and train rides. The festival fun will also include face painting, "spook-tacular" science programs, pumpkin-carving demonstration, entertainment, costume parade, and much more. Family-friendly costumes are encouraged.
$15; $12 for EcoTarium members. Children under 2 years old are admitted free. Light dinner items, soft drinks and festival foods will be available for purchase during the event.
Advance tickets will be available online at www.ecotarium.org. Tickets will also be sold at the gate on the day of the event. Coupons, discounts, and group rates do not apply for Great Pumpkin Fest.Hide
