If Halloween is a little too scary for your tastes, VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver will be the place to celebrate the season without the usual chainsaws, fake blood, and costumed clowns… From October 24 – October 31, 2017 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm daily VanDusen Botanical Garden will be hosting “Glow in the Garden”, a whimsical garden adventure inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

You’re invited to take a trip through the looking glass on what will surely be an unforgettable Halloween walk in the woods at VanDusen Botanical Garden.

Perfect for all ages, Glow in the Garden will bring VanDusen Botanical Garden to life with spellbinding lights, music, and glowing pumpkin characters created by award-winning carvers.

Spend as much time as you want exploring the gardens at night, discovering curious twists and magical moments from the classic tale of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. After the walk, kids can also participate in fun Halloween crafts inside.

There will be pumpkins and hot apple cider available at the Taves Family Farms pop-up shop in the plaza.

You are also encouraged to come to the event in costume, as VanDusen Botanical Gardens will be hosting a photo contest. Tag a photo or video of yourself at the event with the hashtag #VanDusenGlow and you could win a 1 year family membership to the gardens, or Afternoon Tea for Two at Truffles Café.

Tickets to the event are available online and cost $10 for adults, and $6.20 for children.
