Pumpkins and Play

Friday, October 28, 2022
6:00pm – 8:30pm EasternSharon, Connecticut

A combination of a scaled down Audubon Kids’ Day and our expanding community Pumpkin Trail, “Pumpkins and Play” welcomes guests to come walk along the main grounds and view carved and decorated pumpkin entry displays all lit up in the darkness after sunset! Children can have the opportunity to play carnival-type games, meet some friendly animal characters from our Enchanted Forest, view live birds of prey up close, try out some interactive hoop dancing, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, and watch a unique LED Hoop Performance from Creative Game Parties around 7:45pm. Bring your own flashlight for the trail and come in costume if you’d like! A Admission for this event is $15 per carload.

Interested in submitting a carved or decorated pumpkin for the trail?  Please see the info on our Pumpkin Trail event page on how to submit your entry! The more entries we receive, the bigger and better our trail!

Special thanks to our sponsors: Oppenheimer Environmental Fund, Sharon Hospital/Nuvance Health, and Northwest Realty. Please contact us for sponsorship information.
