Spookley is the number one anti-bullying campaign in the USA and Arboretum is delighted to be part of such an important message. Spookley was first introduced to millions of children in the book "The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin", in which he is bullied by all of the round pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire pumpkin patch and only Spookley, with his unique shape, can save the day.
Spookley storytelling will be open to all ages with Arboretums dedicated kids entertainer taking on the role of the animated storyteller. This fantastic event is only €5 per child and can be booked online or in-store. Join in the Halloween fun whilst learning an important anti-bullying message too!
After all this excitement let the children pop into to our Cafe and enjoy a free Hot Chocolate on us, for all kids who attend this fun Halloween event. Then wander over to our pumpkin patch and get your own pumpkin to carve on Halloween night!
Tickets are €5 per child, no charge for adults. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. The order confirmation can be used as your ticket, please present this on the day via phone or printed.
Spookley takes place in Arboretum Carlow in Leighlinbridge with our dedicated children's entertainer Deirdre.
