On the Esplanade, visitors can sip cider, wine, and beer, while listening to live music and shopping among more than 20 of the Garden's favorite local vendors. Have a hot dog or a soft pretzel, and enjoy the best of the fall harvest. Taste mouth-watering salsas, herbs, and vegetables. Bring home gourmet foods including baked goods, cheeses, and honey. Shop for pumpkins, pottery, soaps, and more. Children can navigate the straw bale maze, enjoy the amazing gourd display, and drop in for such family activities as leaf rubbing, a leaf hunt, and mini- scarecrows. Just a few steps away in the Regenstein Center, visitors will find the perfect bulbs for their gardens at the bulb sale, featuring 242 varieties of daffodils, tulips, alliums, and other specialty bulbs. The bulbs are shipped directly from Holland, just in time for fall planting.
