UPDATE: Pumpkin Point will be closed this Sunday due to weather
Due to expected rain and high winds, we’ve decided to close Pumpkin Point this Sunday, October 29.
Please join us at Pumpkin Point this Saturday, October 28 for pumpkin picking, hayrides free arts and crafts from Children’s Museum of the Arts, live music and ghoulish treats from Little Eva’s. And be sure to stop by this Saturday’s free trick or treating in Nolan Park from 2-5PM!
Just in time for Halloween, we’re transforming Picnic Point into our first ever pumpkin patch within view of Lady Liberty! Wander past the autumn colored Hills to Pumpkin Point where you’ll be able to pick (or just snap pics) from thousands of pumpkins, sip cider and snack on ghoulish treats from Little Eva’s. We’ll even have a spooky hayride!
**NOTE: Due to overwhelming demand, the hayride is running on a loop around the Hills, picking up and dropping off at Pumpkin Point to ensure everyone has a chance to hop on. Meet at the lighthouse near Pumpkin Point for a fun loop around the fall colors in our park!
Pumpkins will be available for purchase at $7 for large pumpkins and $3 for small pumpkins. All proceeds benefit the Friends of Governors Island.
Free pumpkin painting will be provided by Children’s Museum of the Arts for all ages.
Brooklyn’s own Jalopy Theatre will provide free live folk music for pumpkin pickers and wanderers! See below for a full lineup
* Taylor Plas sings original songs and interprets classics with an unparalleled vocal tenacity, leaving audiences stunned.
* Rashad Brown has a repertoire of original songs and draws from the magnificent body of American folk traditions, unleashing the electric power of his voice and passion that elevates any room he plays.
