Join us for the inaugural year of what’s sure to become a fall family tradition at Selby Gardens. This new, Halloween-themed light show will transform our Historic Spanish Point campus into “Spooky Point,” where visitors will discover fantastic (but not too scary) creations around every turn.

Guests will follow an eerily lit path through the woods, encountering flying “ghost orchids,” giant “bat orchids,” dangling “spider orchids,” vine-twisted skeletons, and other surprises along the way. There also will be plenty of pumpkins and a hay maze to test your wits after a nighttime walk through the woods.

Food and beverages available for purchase, including fall favorites like candy apples, popcorn, and hot cocoa. Be among the very first to brave a trip to “Spooky Point” this October!

Tickets must be purchased in advance.

Join us for a special evening boat tour from our Downtown Sarasota campus to our Historic Spanish Point campus and back during select nights of Lights at Spooky Point!

This unique experience combines two exclusive Selby Gardens offerings: our campus-to-campus narrated boat tour and our brand-new, Halloween-themed light show. Guests will enjoy a roundtrip evening cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway aboard the Miss Clara, learning about the nature and history of the areas they pass along the way (including some ghost stories and pirate lore). You will also have an hour to enjoy the fantastical lights and mysterious creations at “Spooky Point” before your return trip.
