Halloween is a time when the ghouls, ghosts and goblins come out to play after the sun goes down. On Saturday, October 30th, VanDusen Botanical Garden introduces Jack O’Lantern’s Spooky Stroll. This is a new event where ghosts and goblins of a smaller kind can participate in some gently spooky fun. With all sorts of events for the big kids (Potters House, Police Museum and more here) a few aimed at families with children aged nine and under is always a welcome addition. This new event runs for this one night only from 5 to 7 p.m.
Imagine a path twisting through the dark woods illuminated only by the lit faces of nearly 200 creepy, carved pumpkins. It’s a place of mystery and haunted faces but not too scary to frighten the little ones. At the end of the Spooky Stroll join Anya Levykh, Editor of West Coast Families Magazine at Jack O’Lantern’s House where she will entertain guests with ‘spirited’ tales.
The event happens rain or shine, so dress for the weather – little ones are encouraged to come in costume to help haunt the Garden.
Special prices are in effect and tickets may be purchased in advance at The Garden Shop or at the Gate on the night.
