The Pumpkin Walk is a fun, festive, and free family-oriented event hosted by Bainbridge Gardens. Donations are accepted at this popular, non-scary event and benefit the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club.
People of all ages come to walk along Bainbridge Gardens' historic Nature Trail, to view hundreds of hand designed pumpkins. For many families, the Pumpkin Walk has become a Halloween tradition.
The Pumpkin Walk continues as a daytime event.
The Pumpkin Walk will be open during daytime hours only.
The Trail of Pumpkins will be open, decorated with hundreds of hand-painted pumpkins and our own themed vignettes.
There are several photo taking places around the nursery.
A tiny straw maze for the little ones.
And yes, there will be candy!
We need your creations!
We invite and encourage you to bring in a painted or carved pumpkin for the Pumpkin Walk. When you bring in your finished creation, you can place your pumpkin in the woods or have us do it for you. Completed pumpkins may be dropped off any time in October.
Note: We encourage decorators to leave their pumpkins whole and paint their pumpkins with acrylic paint rather than carve them, so they last longer. Carved pumpkins only last for 3-5 days in the woods.
Last year we were blown away by the amazing contributions by the community! Thank you!
