Nature’s Art Village Halloween Pumpkin Passage
October 1 - October 30
Nature’s Art Village invites guests to the Pumpkin Passage, a month-long celebration of Halloween. Family-friendly, Pumpkin Passage at Nature’s Art Village will take place Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in October, 2021 beginning at 5:00 p.m.
During October, guests can enjoy a family-friendly Halloween experience at Nature’s Art Village’s The Dinosaur Place, where Raptor Bay Trail has been taken over by witches, goblins, and mythical creatures. The nearly half-mile trail of Halloween fun will be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings throughout the month. These dates are October 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 9th, 10th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 29th, and 30th. Guests are encouraged to wear costumes to add to the Halloween festivities.
The journey through the passage begins at Jack-o’-Lantern Junction, where guests can get into the Halloween Spirit amid luminous pumpkins and gleaming lights. As visitors wander down the trail, they will be greeted by several fun and festive attractions, including:
The Candy Corn Corral: Where candy corn creatures tend their haunted farm with their skeleton crew — intended for smiles rather than shrieks.
The Graveyard Grotto: A ghoulish but giggly stroll through ghosts, vampires, and clanking bones — very photo-friendly.
The Nightmare on Raptor Bay: Featuring the Cowl Cave full of spooky secrets surrounded by the festively decked-out dinosaurs of The Dinosaur Place.
Mythical Mysteries: A wonderland of unicorns, witches, and dragons.
Near the end of the Pumpkin Passage lies Ollie’s Outpost, where guests can enjoy hot apple cider and children can explore an inflatable corn maze, bounce houses, and a 20-foot slide. On-site performers will put on entertaining hoop and fire shows. There are also festive games and activities — inflatable ax throwing, corn hole, marshmallow toasting, and “Who’s Your Pumpkin?”
