Pumpkin Palooza

Saturday, October 26, 2024  |  9 am – 2 pm


Scoop, Squish, Create, and More! Pumpkin Palooza is full of fun, not frightening festivities for the whole family. Come in costume and celebrate the season with DCM. This event engages visitors in creative experiences that explore S.T.E.A.M. concepts through play.


Special Activities:

  • Spooky Science Show
  • Build your own FrankenBuddy
    Using recycled toy parts, visitors can create their own unique play…thing or break apart a toy and figure out how it all fits together.
  • Create wearable art
  • Brew your own gooey slime
  • Mix and mash pumpkin guts
    Piles of pumpkin guts never looked so fun. Hammer nails into pumpkins then smoosh and explore what’s inside. Exciting experiments await.
  • Jump & Rake Leaf Piles
    Scatter and rake leaves that dance in our giant air tunnel!
  • Webby Ramps & Rollers
    Will the webs change the course?
  • And More!



This event is indoors and is included with Museum Admission or Membership.
