Gardner Village is THE place to celebrate Fall/Halloween!

Gardner Village is definely one of our favorite places to spend September and October! Okay, even into November and December, but that information will come later! :)

Here is a list of all of their events they have going on. CLICK HERE for the September activities, and CLICK HERE for the October activities (you can also CLICK HERE for a printable October calendar!).

Whimsical Witch Displays
September 17th to October 31st - FREE event
This is one of our favorite events at Gardner Village. The kids love walking around Gardner Village looking at all of the witches on display. The last few years they've had a scavenger hunt as well, so make sure to ask about that. (See next paragraph). End the day with lunch on the lawn outside of Naborhood Bakery while enjoying a homemade sandwich and some treats from Sweet Aftons!

Witches Scavenger Hunt
September 20th - October 31st
In addition to walking around and seeing all of the witches, it's fun to fill out this scavenger hunt form! The witches are out and about at Gardner Village and it's your job to find them. Through the end of October take your completed form to the Naborhood Bakery to receive a delicious chocolate chip cookie for only 25¢ (reg. price 90¢). Looking for a group activity? Spend an evening doing the hunt then hop on board a vintage truck for Ride to a Witch during select evenings through October. CLICK HERE to download the scavenger hunt form!

So You Think You're A Witch
Saturday Sept. 11th - 7pm at The Gathering Place
Enjoy an evening of fun as Gardner Village crowns their new witch royalty. Let your enthusiasm help determine the winners! $5 at the door. Doors open at 5pm.

Ride To A Witch
October 1st through October 29th

We did this last year for the first time, and my kids absolutely LOVED it! Leave your broom at home, and jump on the bed of a vintage truck for the wackiest witch ride ever. She'll take you on a journey to her enchanted sanctuary at Cricket Hollow Swamp. She'll delight you with stories, perform her magic and maybe even cast a spell or two. This is an experience not to be missed. Rides will be held on select dates throughout October. First come, first driven. Reservations not accepted. Cost is $5 a person, and rides begin in the lot west of Archibald's Restaurant. Groups of 20 or more receive a $1 per ticket discount on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Rides run almost every day in October, but CLICK HERE for exact event dates.

Breakfast With A Witch
Selected dates throughout October. CLICK HERE to see the schedule.
Sessions are 8:30am-9:30am and 10:30am-11:30am
We will be doing this for the first time, and we can not wait! We are so excited to have breakfast with Lucinda The Gardner Village Witch and all of her other whisimcal witchy friends as they entertain and mingle while signing autograph sheets, take photos, and cast spells. Cost is $10 per person. Reservations are a must, and you can reserve your tickets online HERE.

Witchapalooza Music Dinner Show
October 8th - October 30th at The Gathering Place

My neighor went to this last year and is still talking about it! She absolutely LOVED it!

Witches' Night Out
Friday October 22nd and Saturday October 23rd - 6pm to 10pm both nights

Witches love any excuse to have fun and throw a party. Ladies...join your fellow sister witches for this evening out. An event for ladies 18 years and older! Plan now to wear your most elaborate witch’s hat or costume. Gardner Village will be filled with enchanting witches from 6 pm to 10 pm both nights. Enter the drawing for fun prizes at 7 pm and 9 pm nightly. Also enjoy an emcee, dancing, music, food booths and more. Stop to have your fortune told, enjoy spellbinding activities in our shops, and join the Witches Parade at 8 pm nightly. New! Don't miss a captivating witches' finale at 10 pm on the main stage. Leave the children with the sitter and grab your witchy friends for this spellbinding ladies night out. There will be a $5 per car parking fee for the event, October 22 and 23 beginning at 4 pm each day. This parking fee ONLY applies to these two dates during October. Receive valuable Village coupons when you park. (SIDE NOTE: For those of you that have been to Witches Night Out in the past know how crazy the parking can get...people double parking, blocking you in, etc. Gardner Village heard our complaints and hired a parking company to handle all parking issues, allowing us to forget our parking worries, and just let lose and have fun! That is the reason for the parking fee. Trust me, it's a good thing and for our benefit!)
