Bainbridge Gardens’ 23nd Annual Pumpkin Walk

Friday, October 14th & Saturday, October 15th, 2016
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

It was heartbreaking. Hundreds of pumpkins were carved, some costumed. Volunteers, musicians, photographer, bounce house, and police officers booked and reconfirmed. But when the power went out and a big tree came crashing down, we realized that we would have to cancel Bainbridge Gardens 23rd Annual Pumpkin Walk for the safety of guests, volunteers and staff.

We want to thank all who worked so hard to set up the Pumpkin Walk, especially the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club, Webelo Den 6, Pack 4496, and the dedicated, tireless staff of Bainbridge Gardens. Our thanks also to the community for its understanding. We hope you received word of the cancellation before you headed out in the wind and rain. We are amazed and grateful for all who have called or come by in the past few days to tell us how sorry they are that the event was cancelled. We appreciate the generosity of those who have left a donation for the Boys and Girls Club, which would have received the proceeds of the event. We will continue to accept donations for the Boys and Girls Club.

Never in its 23-year history have we had to cancel the Pumpkin Walk. Let's hope we'll never have to cancel again. We look forward to seeing you soon at Bainbridge Gardens, and of course, at Pumpkin Walk 2017.

What do you do
at the Pumpkin Walk?
Hundreds of people of all ages come to walk along Bainbridge Gardens’ historic Nature Trail, glowing with a grand display of nearly 300 lighted, carved pumpkins.  For many families, the Pumpkin Walk has become a Halloween tradition.
Kids enjoy winding through our Harvest Hay Maze and jumping in the inflatable Bounce House.
You can have your picture taken with the “Great Pumpkin” (he gives out candy too!) or tap your toes to live music from "Kitsap Konnection"
The Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club provides face painting and carnival games with prizes.
Food and beverages are available for purchase from the New Rose Café.
Who carves
all those pumpkins?
We invite and encourage you to bring in a carved pumpkin for the Pumpkin Walk.  We have pumpkins and carving tools for purchase at Bainbridge Gardens   When you bring in your finished creation,  you will receive a small prize for participating. Completed pumpkins need to be dropped off at Bainbridge Gardens by Friday afternoon, October 14th.  We’ll provide candles. 
What do you wear
to the Pumpkin Walk?
This is an outdoor event; please dress for the weather.  Costumes are optional.
Where should we park? There is limited parking on-site at Bainbridge Gardens.  A police officer and event volunteers will coordinate parking at Bainbridge Gardens. 
Off-site, there will be parking lots designated for Pumpkin Walk guests.  These parking spaces are provided to us as a courtesy from neighboring businesses and the City of Bainbridge Island.  Some parking lots will have shuttle service provided by the Bainbridge Island Boys and Girls Club. Look for our signs indicating shuttle pick-up/drop-off locations.
We urge you to use caution, especially with young children, on surrounding streets and in our parking lot.
