Costume Parade! Pumpkins in the Park is a harvest fair for families with a strong environmental education component. It is designed to promote awareness of the Guadalupe River Park and celebrate the fall season. Pumpkins in the Park is held to raise funds and enlist supporters for Guadalupe River Park Conservancy. But, just as importantly, its purpose is to create awareness of the park and gardens and to bring families into the park for a day of learning and fun.
Mysterious hauntings happen every day at this spooky place, but a special Halloween attraction makes it even more compelling to see and experience how Sarah Winchester's compulsion turned non-believers into screamers.
