Punkin Path Garden Display

Opens October 8

Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.

The path will be decorated with pumpkins, gourds, bales of straw- and gnomes! – to provide fun photo memories. Gnomes are caretakers of land and animals; they are industrious, enjoy all kinds of games, and surprisingly, they love to travel! Watch for them along the Punkin’ Path and learn about them. This exhibit is included in Conservatory admission and open during public hours. Sponsored by Majic 95.1.
