Halloween is coming to downtown Oklahoma City as Pumpkinville opens Saturday at the Myriad Botanical Gardens.

As many as 3,000 pumpkins, scarecrows, straw creatures and mums will give the gardens a Halloween theme. Pumpkinville will be open through the end of the month, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Admission is $5 per child and $3 per adult for nonmembers; Myriad Botanical Gardens members are admitted free.

Pumpkinville is a celebration of pumpkins and all things fall and was the idea of Myriad Gardens Executive Director Maureen Heffernan.

“Fall is such a wonderful time of year to enjoy the gardens, and Pumpkinville is a charming place for families to celebrate the season,” Heffernan said.

The entire children's garden will be transformed into a fun, not-too-spooky wonderland, complete with a hay-bale maze, arts and crafts activities, games and storytelling.

New this year will be a centerpiece created by artist Hugh Meade of Oddfab Design Lab. A giant owl constructed of straw and other natural materials will occupy the center of the children's garden. Special display sponsor for the event is Delta Dental of Oklahoma.
