Botanical Garden of the Ozarks will host their annual Little Sprouts Costume Parade this week.

The event, originally scheduled for Tuesday, has been moved due to inclement weather. It is now set for 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 30 at the garden.

All ages of children are welcome to attend, however the program is geared toward preschoolers. Kids are encouraged to wear their costumes and play and explore the garden. There will be a craft area, scavenger hunt, photo booth area, and a movement activity. Kids will receive goody bags while supplies last with treats and coupons.

Costume contests will take place each hour, at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., and 1 p.m.

Masks are required upon entry to the garden for everyone age 10 and older.

No advance registration is required. The event is free for garden members with a family membership. For non-members, there is no admission charge for children 4 and under. Admission is $5 for children ages 5 and older, and $7 for adults.
