 Fall is here! What better time to enjoy some quality family time playing and making memories together? Get ready for a jam-packed weekend full of fall-themed fun to celebrate the changing of the seasons both indoors and outdoors at Explore & More. 

From crafts in the Art Studio to making pumpkin launchers in the Tinkering Tank, there’s plenty happening at Explore & More that will get your family playing and learning. You can enjoy a delicious Mayer Brothers donut with a sample of fresh cider and then square dance on the Rooftop Terrace. Your child will be so excited to choose a magical design from a professional Face Painter from 11am-3pm. All this is included in your general admission price! 

Plus, check out our outdoor pumpkin patch in the Loading Dock where we will have affordable child-sized pumpkins for sale while supplies last. 

October 15th » 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
