Third Annual Pumpkin Passage - Nature’s Art Village | Kids Out and About Hartford

Third Annual Pumpkin Passage - Nature’s Art Village

A spectacular experience of lights, sights, and sounds to scratch that Halloween itch without the frights. Walk the trail and share in several spooky Halloween experiences. Top your night off with roasted marshmallows, some warm cider, or a hot chocolate! Nature’s Art Village is proud to bring back our haunted Halloween experience for the third time! Raptor Bay Trail has been taken over by goblins, witches, and mythical creatures! Don’t worry, the scares are minimal but the lights are dazzling! Family members of all ages can enjoy themselves. Five different experiences await you on almost a half-mile of our immaculate trail. Begin at Candy Corn Corral where you might get a little fright… depending on your opinion of Candy Corn. Staged with twinkling lights and massive candy corn companions, you’ll find yourself smiling instead of shrieking to start your stroll. When you’re finished meandering through the funny faux confections, you’ll make your way into Graveyard Grotto. The grotto is filled to the brim with clanking bones and the ghosts of our past, so be sure to pay your respects as you walk through.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.


After you’ve giggled with the ghosts and ghouls of Graveyard Grotto, you’ll pass through a mildly threatening threshold of bones and enter Nightmare on Raptor Bay. You might want to be careful around these parts. We have a caged raptor and you MUST not put your hand in the cage MWAhaha! Our cave has become overgrown since the spirit of Halloween showed up so be careful when you explore… you might spook the Dino living inside-o.

You’ve escaped the nightmare, so it’s time to watch your dreams come true at Mythical Mysteries. Unicorns, witches, and dragons, oh my! Mythical Mysteries is a magical wonderland along the lines of Alice’s tumble down the rabbit hole. This wonky and whimsical walk will wind down the trip before heading on to the outpost!

Whew! You’ve made it to Ollie’s Outpost! Ollie’s Outpost is a place to kick back, relax and enjoy the fall air. We recently added a raised fire pit so we HAD to do complimentary marshmallows for roasting. There’s more but if I told you everything, Pumpkin Passage wouldn’t be the journey we intended.
