Family Activities – Pumpkin Carving


It is that time of year again, when the temperatures cool off, apples, pears and quince are abundant and pumpkins are all the rage.

If you are a family that resides in or near Basel mark your calendars for TODAY, Sunday, October 14 and October 28 for Family Sunday at Grün 80 (Rainstrasse 6, 4142 Münchenstein).

For just Fr. -2 children can purchase a pumpkin, carve the pumpkin and leave the mess. Yes!!! Plus, once you have finished carving enjoy a gorgeous walk around the Merian Gärtens.
