Enjoy a Pleasant Halloween at Descanso Gardens

(LA Trend) — For the entire month of October, Descanso Gardens will be hosting a family-friendly Halloween celebration for some safe and mellow Halloween fun.

Guests will be welcomed to stroll through socially-distanced, pumpkin-themed displays scattered around the most popular sections of Descanso Gardens, including a hay maze, a pumpkin arch, wooden jack-o’-lantern boxes, a scarecrow trail through a forest, and a house made completely out of pumpkins. And don’t forget to check out the Oak Grove, which will be home to a mandala of orange, white, and green pumpkins.

Attendees 14 and younger are encouraged to wear costumes (along with requisite face masks) as they explore the various displays, and The Kitchen at Descanso will offer an array of tasty, fall-inspired drinks and soups, along with decadent delights like caramel corn and churros.

Non-members must purchase tickets in advance, which can be ordered here. Tickets are not required for Descanso Gardens members. Extended hours will be reserved for members at the Family Plus level and above on Halloween night.
