BOO! Don’t let this year’s FUNtazmagoria sneak up on you!

Friday, October 27 – Sunday, October 29, 2023

Join us for a family-friendly celebration of all things spooky!

Dig for bones in the Ghastly Corn Graveyard and watch as pumpkins explode in the Pumpkin Plop. Our Mad Scientist Lab will be a not-to-be-missed experience in Ella’s Art Studio with eerie electric exploration. Spider webs, ghostly shapes, and slime will all glow with a spectral light next door at the Ghostly Glow-In-The-Dark Lab. Play with bubbling potions and prepare to meet real live creepy crawlies in Mary’s Garden.
