Glow at the Gardens will return in the second half of October to 1007 York Street when locally harvested pumpkins will turn into sculptures that light up the lush gardens. All of the pumpkins featured in Glow at the Gardens are hand-carved by the Denver Botanic Gardens pumpkin carving team. The hand-carved pumpkins will then be turned into sculptures that are held together by wood or metal armatures.

The Denver Botanic Gardens wants you to dress up in your Halloween costume when you come to Glow at the Garden too. There are a couple of restrictions when it comes to costumes, however. This could be the perfect time to load the entire family into the car and get in the Halloween spirit and experience hundreds of Jack-o-Lanterns.
