Van Dusen GLOW In The Garden 2018

Happy Halloween fellow Ponderer!

As I’ve mentioned before in some of my other posts, I have never really celebrated Halloween. This year I decided to go to Glow in the Garden at the Van Dusen Garden. I thought it was a cute concept, where you follow a trail of breadcrumbs (lights), just like in the story of Hansel and Gretel. Hansel and Gretel has to be one of my favourite children’s stories, and so there was a little nostalgia to the idea of walking in their trail. Let me know if you too loved the Hansel and Gretel story as a child.


The Pumpkins at Glow In The Garden were carved by a local sculptor – Bruce Waugh. I will share with you a few pictures that I took of his work. The pumpkins were really cool to look at. They all had different facial expressions.

Overall I thought that the Van Dusen Glow In The Garden 2018 was quite nice, especially for young children. They seemed most excited about the Hansel and Gretel aspects of the pathway. I think one of the highlights of the path was the witches candy house. I saw kids getting extremely excited when hearing the “witches voice.”
