VanDusen Glow in the Garden returns for another season of festive enchantment. Join us this Halloween season for a walk through a new light show with unique features and magical moments.
The old barred owl has played a Halloween trick by casting a "hootenanny" spell and making it glow. Help Anna the hummingbird and her friends lift the spell as you journey through the garden. Kids can collect all six stamps at the Glow zones and redeem them for a small prize at the bootique located inside the Visitor Centre halls.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy tasty treats, crafts, and much more.
