Scare up a good time at Ghouls & Goblins in the Gardens, a family-friendly Halloween event set in the Arboretum gardens. Dress up in your most imaginative costumes and come out for some "spook-friendly" fun! This year's Ghouls & Goblins will feature a shorter Trick or Treat Trail past the "Cabin in the Woods" inhabited by a cauldron-stirring witch, then meander by the haunted graveyard and Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Watch out for soaring bats and ghosts!

Additional features include face-painting, concessions and pumpkin sales, plus haunting music galore. Visitors can also enjoy the Arboretum's amazing Pumpkin Palooza display of thousands of pumpkins, squash and gourds. Our Scarecrows in the Gardens characters are sure to delight! Also on Sunday is a Spooktacular concert by the Minnetonka Symphony Orchestra, 3-4:30 p.m. in the MacMillan Auditorium. Free with gate admission.
