The Bainbridge Gardens Pumpkin Walk In Washington Is A Classic Fall Tradition
There’s nothing like a beautiful, crisp, Pacific Northwest autumn. And if you have little ones in your life, we’ve found the perfect fall tradition. The annual Bainbridge Gardens Pumpkin Walk is upon us, and it’s a great excuse to visit Bainbridge Island… and walk through a glowing display of hundreds of pumpkins while you’re at it.
Bainbridge Gardens is
a family-owned garden center that sits on a historic site on Bainbridge Island.
The 6-acre property stays busy all year. Featuring plenty of large trees, plants, an onsite cafe, and even a children's play area, it's a fun place to check out in any season. But in October, it's exceptional.
The annual Pumpkin Walk is fun, festive, and family-friendly.
This year's dates are Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
There is no admission charge for the Pumpkin Walk, although there is a suggested cash donation at each attraction.
Aside from the Pumpkin Walk itself, young guests can enjoy a Harvest Hay Maze, a bounce house, carnival games, and live music.
But the main attraction here is the walk itself.
You'll stroll through Bainbridge Gardens’ historic Nature Trail, which is illuminated by nearly 300 lighted, carved pumpkins.
This fun little stroll will put you into the Halloween spirit.
This year's Pumpkin Walk will be its 26th, so it's safe to say this is a beloved local tradition.
Best of all, guests are welcome to bring their own carved pumpkins... and some of them are quite creative.
You'll find pumpkins and carving kits available for purchase onsite in case inspiration strikes. When you bring in your finished creation, you'll receive a small prize for participating. But if you want your creation to be part of the pumpkin walk, you;ll want to take it to the gardens by October 11.
Come see why the Bainbridge Gardens Pumpkin Walk is such a beloved local celebration.
While costumes are optional, dressing for the weather isn't. Remember, you'll be outdoors, and the island can get cold in the evenings.
