It’s unfair that Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world! Tell Congress to stop Rx greed and cut drug prices now.    

Glow at The Gardens

Friday, Oct 25, 2019 at 5:30pm

Denver Botanic Gardens
1007 York Street
Denver, CO 80206

Glow at the Gardens is a luminous, nighttime celebration of America’s favorite gourd.

The Gardens dresses up for Halloween with luminaria-lined pathways, spooky lighting displays and hundreds of carved, glowing gourds.

Using all real pumpkins harvested from local farms, our pumpkin artists push the boundaries of traditional pumpkin carving to create larger-than-life sculptures, dense displays of jack-o-lanterns and ornately detailed showpiece pumpkins. In addition to the pumpkin sculptures and creepy atmosphere, enjoy a wide array of activities, including:

Trick-or-treating – bring your own bag!

Fire performances

LED performers

Pumpkin carving demos from world-class pumpkin carvers

Halloween caricatures

Glow-in-the-dark games

Halloween carnival games

Hands-on crafts & coloring

Scavenger hunt
