3rd annual Great May Center Pumpkin Walk: 
Bring the whole family for an evening stroll through the May Museum and Arboretum. 500 amazingly carved pumpkins will be lit and on display along the path. Kids can trick-or-treat along the way with costumed volunteers.

Cost: $5.00 per person. Avoid the lines --Pre-sale tickets available for purchase at the museum.

*This event is stroller friendly and not-too-spooky! Please note that sunset is at 6:16 pm so families with young children who may be scared of the dark will want to come earlier in the evening.
