Bootanical Features Attractions for Kids and Adults
Using nature-based elements as inspiration, Bootanical has become a favorite for children who can celebrate a fun Halloween in the daylight. Participants can enjoy activities like: All-Wrapped-Up-Mummy, where children can created ghoulish mummies from recycled items like toilet-paper rolls; and Scented Pumpkin shaker, which turns recycled egg cartons into a fragrant clove holder. Kids can also look forward to nature based scavenger hunts and games that include Dragon Eye Popper, Spider Ring Toss and Candy Corn Bag Toss.
Children are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite costume. Children wearing costumes will receive a 50% discount with a paying adult.
In addition, the Garden is adding an outdoor botanical marketplace to Bootanical, where guests can find one-of-a kind creations by artists whose work uses — or features — plants, gardens, nature and the environment-inspired creations. Featuring pottery, baskets, gourd art, herbal soaps, lotions, candles, handcrafted jewelry and other decorative art, this is the perfect opportunity to get in some holiday shopping.
