With just a few weeks left until Halloween, make sure to visit the Roger’s Gardens Halloween Boutique, Hocus Pocus, and surround yourself in a world of magic.
According to the Roger’s Gardens website, “Wander the corridors of a most magical school where witches and wizards learn their craft. Prospective students are invited to tour the castle. Explore the Headmaster’s Study, a room filled with curiosities and antiquities. Discover where novice witches and wizards study in the Potions classroom, be sure not to tamper with their mysterious experiments. Who knows what mythical creatures are lurking in the cabinets. Students wishing to learn about the magical properties of plants can visit the Greenhouse Conservatory where rare and unusual specimens are cultivated.”
“Each of the many rooms in this castle are filled with enchanted objects and décor to fill your home with the spirit of Halloween. Visit Roger’s Gardens this Halloween season and surround yourself in a world of magic.”
Explore the Headmaster’s Study
By special invitation, you are welcomed to explore the hallowed halls of the School of Magic. Whether you are courageous or sneaky, the doors of the study are open for just a short time. Ascend the tower and explore all the trinkets, curiosities, and wizardry packed into every magical corner of the Headmaster’s Study.
Visit the Herbology Greenhouse
Herbology is a mandatory class for students at School of Magic! In the Herbology Greenhouse, learn how the wizards repot their Mandrakes while you spy on all the other magical plants and Greenhouse specimens. Be the top student when you discover the Haunted Tree, and if you are lucky enough to meet the Into the Woods Pumpkin, please don’t ask him why he’s grinning!
Discover the Potions Classroom
In the cellars of the dungeons at the School of Magic, you will find wizards and their most potent potions. In the Potions Classroom, the ingredients span from the ordinary to the unimaginable; here you will find the oddest of oddities, the most sparkly of gems, the opportunity to learn the magical mixology of potions, and dark magic written in the Hocus Pocus hidden textbook. A word of warning: don’t step on the Warty Toad in the dark!
The Great Hall
Gather round to your respective tables and follow the sacred seating chart when you sit down to consider the delicacies on offer in the Great Hall. Light the way with Frick and Frack—a pair of seriously cranky candlesticks—and don’t forget to look up! The great White Owl is sure to be flapping its wings overhead. Remember to set your watch as you enter because checking the Time Warp Clock instead could find you lost in the Great Hall for hours!
As a family-owned business, Roger’s Gardens has been a landmark destination in Orange County for more than 50 years, located in beautiful Corona del Mar. Their Halloween Boutique, Hocus Pocus, is currently open every day through October 21st.
