Description

Just in time for fall, Governors Island’s Nolan Park will transform with its third annual Pumpkin Point, a free, family-friendly patch of over 5,000 pumpkins the last two weekends in October.

Stroll through the pumpkin patch and enjoy free, Halloween-inspired arts and craft activities with Children’s Museum of the Arts, and enjoy festive fare from Governors Island’s own Little Eva’s and Threes Brewing.

Pumpkins are available for purchase, and members enjoy a free pumpkin when they show their member card! Not a member? Join today! Show your freshly-picked pumpkin at Adventures at Governors Island and receive a special discount on the Weekday Adventures Combo.

Pumpkin Point will be open October 19-20 & October 26-27 at 10:00am-6:00pm. Arts activities and vending will close at 5:00pm. Pumpkins will also be available for purchase Thursday, October 24 & Friday, October 25 at 10:00am-5:00pm.

On Saturday, October 26 join us at 1:00pm for free trick-or-treating in Nolan Park. Young visitors and their families are encouraged to come in costume to receive free treats. Trick-or-Treating will be first come, first serve and will last throughout the afternoon until supplies run out. In addition, Blazing Saddles will also offer free candy for Trick-or-Treaters at its Liggett Terrace location.



This year’s Pumpkin Point and Trick-or-Treating events are co-presented by the Trust for Governors Island and the Friends of Governors Island. Generous support for the events is provided by Bloomberg Philanthropies. Any pumpkins left over from Pumpkin Point will be baked into pumpkin pies and donated to The Bowery Mission, which serves homeless and hungry New Yorkers, or composted on Governors Island by Earth Matter, which runs the Island’s Compost Learning Center.
