Scarecrow Trail at the Botanical Gardens-every day thru 10/31
With weekend hayrides, a picturesque Pumpkin Patch, and, of course, our ever-popular Scarecrow Trail, nothing says family fun like fall at the Huntsville Botanical Garden! This year, in honor of our 30th birthday and to coincide with our Gardens of Myth exhibit (now – October 31), we’re asking 30 artists, families, and businesses to create our best trail ever with “Mythical & Magical Scarecrows of Legend.” We’ll display the 30 scarecrows along the Dogwood Trail and Mathews Nature Trail. The Children’s Garden will be decorated during October with its own display of mythical and magical scarecrows (created by schoolkids), pumpkins galore, and a fun exhibit in the BOO-terfly House the last weekend of the month! In September and October, we’ll offer Weekend Hayrides on Saturdays from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. And to truly get into the spirit of the season, join us for Scarecrow Trail Night Hikes on October 9, 12, 25, and 30 at 6 p.m. Bring your camera to capture the beauty of autumn in the Garden and don’t forget to visit the Pumpkin Patch for a family photo!
