Mark your calendars for the 5th annual BOOtanica on Saturday, October 12, at Botanica. The event takes place from 11 AM to 4 PM.

BOOtanica is one of those great fall family festivals that continues to draw in crowds because of its combination of fall and natire.

While at Bootanica, take part in the event's numerous activities, including decorating a trick or treat bag, getting your face painted, or creating a glowing ghost.

Feel free to come dressed in costume!

Admission is $7 per person, $5 for Botanica members. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the door.
