Nestled in the coastal city of Encinitas, San Diego Botanic Garden transforms into an autumn oasis with its lineup of fall happenings.

Fall Festival Day: Bring the whole family to experience a special Fall Festival Family Day on Saturday, October 21 from 10AM to 3PM. The event will feature fall crafts, music from Billy Lee and the Swamp Critters, a spooky boo-tanical costume parade, and a chance to plant your own ghost succulent, learn about and dissect pumpkins and hold a slimy worm, if you dare! Each guest will also receive a mini pumpkin to decorate.

On display through October 29, be on the look out for bats, spiders and skeletons hidden throughout this larger-than-life exhibition!
