Please join in the fun at Boothbay’s Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens for The Great Pumpkin Hunt, a new and free family event to be held on Saturday, Oct. 25 (rain date Sunday, Oct. 26) at the Great Lawn and Bibby and Harold Alfond Children’s Garden.
Bring your best pumpkin pie for the judges!
There will be prizes, activities, and 15,000 pounds of pumpkins to enjoy in the gardens.
Children can hunt for “Golden Pumpkins” at 1 p.m. — lucky finders will win gift certificates to purchase their family’s Thanksgiving meal.
We’ll also have pumpkin pie judging at 2 p.m. and pumpkin carving judging at 3 p.m.
This event is open to the public.
Donations to the Boothbay Region Food Pantry at the door will be gratefully accepted.
