Venue: National Botanic Gardens Website: http://www.botanicgardens.ie/ Price: Free Date: 21st October – 5th November
This is the 4th year for this event, which proves to be a big hit with visitors every year. Bring your decorated pumpkin to the Visitor Centre on Saturday 21st October and be part of the Halloween exhibition of funky designs. Pumpkins should only be decorated on the external skin, to avoid decomposition (no cutting). The exhibition will be on display in the gardens until Monday 5th November. There will be a prize awarded to the most imaginative entry.
N.B. Please remember that they will not accept pumpkins that have been cut into or carved, as they will decay rapidly.
Further details, entry forms and tips for decoration are available online at
