The New York Botanical Garden has taken the classic tradition of pumpkin carving and flipped it around, upside down, and then turned it into a giant scorpion pumpkin statue -- at The Haunted Pumpkin Garden. Take the whole family to this seasonal exhibit -- it's big on treats and low on tricks -- and wander through the Everett Children's Adventure Garden to discover a fantasy land full of intricately carved pumpkins that form massive statutes, sculptures, and stand-alone displays. Or, check out the Giant Pumpkin Carving Weekend, October 19 and 20, to see giant pumpkins from around the world transformed by Master Carver Ray Villafane of Food Network fame.

…the big attractions are the sculptures. As soon as you walk through the decorated gates, you'll spot massive flies, bugs, caterpillars and a giant scorpion, all made from pumpkins and gourds.
