Part of Autumn at the Arboretum — which includes a Peter Pan-themed display made from 90,000 gourds and 150,000 fall blooming plants — this weekend of special events includes face-painting and a petting zoo in the garden, plus live music, cooking demonstrations and free wine and beer samples for adults over 21 on Oct. 6-8. On Oct. 8, Columbus Day, children's singer-songwriter Eddie Coker will perform at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and there will be a bubble performer from noon to 2 p.m. Throughout the weekend, you can get discounts by taking a pumpkin carved with your college logo ($2 off admission) or by wearing a school football jersey ($5 off parking).
Children age 2-12 are $10. Children under 2 are free.
