How Día de los Muertos Came to Discovery Green®

Since the park’s debut in 2008, Halloween has always been a big deal at Discovery Green. “Scream on the Green is one of our annual events that people look forward to the most, and it celebrates a very American holiday of Halloween,” says programming director Susanne Theis.

Discover the magic of moonGARDEN at Discovery Green®

The marquee art exhibition at Discovery Green this fall is moonGARDEN, designed to dazzle with oversized, glowing orbs that will transform the park into a magical dreamscape. This work creates such a fascinating and dynamic world of light and color that many may be surprised that at its core, it’s based on the oldest and most universal form of storytelling on the planet: shadow play. Designed by Montreal art collective Lucion, moonGARDEN will be on display in the park from Sept. 29 through Oct. 7, where the artists hope that it inspires others to dream and find their own creativity.
