In a first-time event at the Botanical Center this past Sunday, children, adults and families enthusiastically painted pumpkins to keep for themselves and to display at the Center. Colors and designs for the pumpkins delight the eye, and the pumpkins that are displayed on the Botanical Center’s pumpkin trail are wonderfully enchanting. The pumpkins, which were donated by Rhode Island Nurseries Inc., can be seen every day at the Botanical Center (Tuesday-Sunday, 11-4). And if you have a painted pumpkin that you would like to put on the pumpkin trail, bring it along. We will be happy to display it.
