It’s time to get into all the fall fun, and what better way than a kid-friendly fall event in Orlando with pumpkin painting at Wild Florida! On October 14, you and your family can choose any pumpkin and they will provide all the utensils you need to create your pumpkin masterpiece!

You will be able to paint pumpkins from 10 am to 4 pm, giving you and your party plenty of time to let your creativity shine. It’s just $5 per pumpkin you’d like to paint and if you’d like to visit the Gator Park, they are offering a $10 combo ticket for everyone, not just Florida residents! You can either take your pumpkin home or leave it for one of your new animal friends inside the Gator Park. The non-toxic paint won’t hurt any of the animals and will add some pumpkin spice to their exhibit.

But the fun doesn’t stop after you’ve created your fall masterpiece! The’ve set up a scavenger hunt throughout the Gator Park that will give you a chance to earn cool Wild Florida prizes. Be sure to pick up your exclusive clue card at the Gift Shop between 10 am and 2 pm, then use your detective skills to search the animal exhibits to find your answers. After you’ve filled out your card just return it by 2:30 pm to enter the chance to win one of the prizes. And, to make things better, if you finish your card early and correctly, your family will receive an extra, more wild surprise. Wild Florida will choose the winners at 3 pm, so don’t walk too far because your family must be present to claim your prize!

Hint: If you take a family selfie with Yeti, the albino gator who welcomes you in the Wild Florida gift shop, and tag us when you post it on your social channels, your family will earn a second entry!

Are you ready to join in on the fun? Sign up for pumpkin painting by October 10th and let Wild Florida know you’re coming! If you forget, don’t worry! They will accept some walk-ups, but it would be while supplies last.
