Sixth Annual Pumpkinville Was a tremendous success!
One of the most treasured fall traditions in Oklahoma City – Pumpkinville – was Friday, October 6-Sunday, October 22. The popular Children’s Garden was transformed into “Prairie Pumpkin Town” featured thousands of pumpkins, hundreds of gourds, a variety of fall foliage and tons of fun activities.
More than 16,000 pumpkins filled the Children’s Garden along with imaginative displays, creative crafts and fun games that celebrated the fall season. Visitors enjoyed riding the Pumpkinville Express Train, Paint-A-Pumpkin, an appearance by the award-winning Express Clydesdales, pop-up shops and other activities that were held onsite as part of our festivities.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Myriad Gardens Foundation depends on the generosity of visitors and friends to maintain the Gardens and to fund the 400-plus events held at the Gardens each year for all of the community to enjoy. Pumpkinville is a prime fundraising event with all proceeds benefitting the operations of the Gardens. Pumpkinville visitors are encouraged to purchase a family membership for $65 which entitles up to eight people to enter Pumpkinville, plus year-round free admission to the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory and more.
