Event Description:
The Perfect Pumpkin Party - Join Audubon for a different kind of autumn celebration and find out just how much fun a pumpkin can be! Search for hidden pumpkins throughout the wildlife refuge, try your hand at pumpkin games, then collect stickers for your own “patch.” Visit our silly photo booth for a fall family picture and purchase a pumpkin to decorate. Don’t forget to come in costume – those who do will receive a prize! The party will include favorite games from last year as well as new activities – it’s all about the big orange pumpkin! No need to register.
