One of the coolest fall exhibits is open at Franklin Park Conservatory, and if you love autumn, you won’t want to miss it.
Harvest Blooms opens on September 23, but you don’t have to rush. You’ve still got plenty of time to see the beautiful fall colors because the exhibit will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until October 29.
So what can you expect?
“Harvest Blooms instills the Conservatory’s outdoor gardens and courtyards with the magic of the harvest season. Thousands of pumpkins, mums and ornamental cabbages decorate the landscape while two spectacular Pumpkin Houses stand ready to welcome guests.”
Oh, and did I mention the larger than life cornucopia filled with overflowing color and a whimsical ‘tree of pumpkins’? It’s seriously going to be epic.
Admission to Harvest Blooms is included with your admission to the conservatory, and it’s a great experience for the whole family. The harvest theme will be incorporated into existing exhibitions, like the Paul Busse Garden Railway.
Later on in the season, you’ll also be able to experience the magic of Pumpkins Aglow. This ticketed event will feature the beautiful Harvest Blooms while surrounded by glowing jack-o-lanterns and themed light displays.
Of course, there’s nothing quite like visiting the conservatory when the fall foliage is in full swing. Each week, Franklin Park Conservatory offers weekly reports to help visitors identify where to look for color at the Conservatory or in the surrounding Franklin Park. The reports are published on Thursday morning, giving you plenty of time to make your weekend plans.
