Glow in the Garden

Glow in the Garden

Experience an unforgettable Halloween walk in the woods at VanDusen Botanical Garden

The Garden comes to life with spellbinding lights, ghoulish music, and glowing pumpkin characters created by award-winning carvers, Clive Cooper and Bruce Waugh.

After the walk, costumed kids will enjoy creating fun Halloween crafts inside.

Parents can pick up a pumpkin and hot apple cider at the Taves Family Farms pop-up shop on the plaza.

Don't miss Clive's live carving demos on October 24, 27, and 30.
