Celebrate Autumn at Bainbridge Gardens’ 22nd Annual Pumpkin Walk
With autumn in the air, that means that it’s once again time for the Island’s popular Bainbridge Gardens’ Pumpkin Walk! The Pumpkin Walk is a fun, festive, family-oriented event that takes place over two nights every October. The proceeds of this popular, non-scary event benefit the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club. This year, the Pumpkin Walk will be held Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Bainbridge Gardens.
Hundreds of people of all ages come to walk along Bainbridge Gardens’ historic Nature Trail, glowing with a grand display of nearly 300 lighted, carved pumpkins. For many families, the Pumpkin Walk has become a Halloween tradition. Kids enjoy winding through our Harvest Hay Maze and jumping in the inflatable Bounce House. You can have your picture taken with the “Great Pumpkin” (he gives out candy too!) or tap your toes to live music from “Kitsap Konnection.” The Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club provides face painting and carnival games with prizes. Food and beverages are available for purchase from the New Rose Café.
You are invited and encouraged to bring in a carved pumpkin for the Pumpkin Walk. Pumpkins and carving tools will also be available for purchase at Bainbridge Gardens. When you bring in your finished creation, you will receive a small prize for participating! Completed pumpkins need to be dropped off at Bainbridge Gardens by Friday afternoon, October 16th.
Celebrate autumn on Bainbridge Island by participating in this year’s Pumpkin Walk, a Bainbridge Island tradition!
