Great Gourds!

What better way to celebrate fall than joining the Greensboro Science Center and The Fresh Market for a Pumpkin Palooza?!?!

For the 5th consecutive year, The Fresh Market is graciously donating pumpkins – and tasty pumpkin treats – for Greensboro Science Center visitors to enjoy during Pumpkin Palooza on Saturday, October 18, 2014. This event, which is free with general admission or membership, is filled with all kinds of fall family fun – from games and activities to entertaining animal enrichment and scrumptious snacks.

From 10:00am to 1:00pm, visitors will have the opportunity to watch our animals enjoy some pumpkin fun. It’s always amusing to see just what the animals will do with their pumpkins… play with them, crush them, eat them, swim with them, carve them (okay, maybe not)… Animals will be given their pumpkins at approximately the following times:

Lemur Enjoy Pumpkin Treat

11:00am               Tortoises
11:30am               Fishing Cat
12:00pm               Meerkats
12:30pm               Otters

Animals aren’t the only ones enjoying the autumnal action. Kids will have a great time playing pumpkin and Halloween-themed games like Bag the Bat, Pumpkin Bowling, Ring the Pumpkin, Black Cat Golf and more!
