Scarecrow Picnic


Scarecrow Picnic, Sunday, September 22, 12-3 p.m.

Scarecrow Picnic kicks off our Fabulous Fall at Wellfield Botanic Gardens, featuring a fun family picnic, live music, photos with Mrs. Scarecrow, face painting, make-n-take life sized scarecrow activity for families, kids crafts, prizes and of course, the Garden in its FALL attire including pumpkins, gourds, and photo opportunities! And by popular demand, the picnic will again be held in our CHILDREN’S GARDEN (unless it’s raining, in which case we have you covered – – literally – – in a big tent!) Picnic registrants will have exclusive access and use of the Children’s Garden that afternoon.
