The annual Trick or Treat event at Franklin Park Conservatory is bigger than ever this year, growing from one day to two days, featuring 10 stations instead of 6, and extending into the brand new Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden.
Trick or Treat at the Conservatory will be held 10am-5pm on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 and it is included with general admission.
Candy stations will take young trick-or-treaters throughout the indoor garden and out into the Children’s Garden, where guests can enjoy a seasonal installation that is quickly becoming a fan-favorite: the 10-ft tall pumpkin house.
Because some of the stations are outdoors, weather-appropriate costumes are encouraged. Guests are also asked to bring their own bags for collecting treats.
Treat stations will include a variety of packaged candy and packaged snack foods.
The Trick or Treat weekend marks the last to enjoy two popular displays: Harvest Blooms and Topiaries at the Conservatory, both of which end October 28.
The Harvest Blooms display features thousands of colorful mums and unusual gourds. Topiaries at the Conservatory invites visitors to discover dozens of animal sculptures made from living plants throughout the garden.
Other exhibitions trick-or-treaters can enjoy include Field, a motion-sensitive digital garden and the annual Bonsai Display, where a rotating collection of miniature trees are staged among the pumpkins and fall foliage. Those exhibitions both end on November 11.
