This isn’t the cheapest event in town, but it is one of the most fun for a fall evening. Luminaria-lined pathways wind through the Denver Botanic Gardens to reveal larger-than-life pumpkin displays during Glow at the Gardens. Musicians, dancers and performing artists bring spirits and specters to life, and scores of hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns harvested from local farms light up the night with grins and grimaces fit for the season.
Bring your face mask and a macabre mood for this enchanted autumnal experience. Seasonal treats and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the Hive Garden Bistro.
Guests are encouraged to dress up in costume.
The event runs 6 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, October 18 to 23.
Tickets are $25/adults, $23/adult member, $23/senior (65+), $21/senior member (65+), $21/children (ages 3-15), $19/children member. Free for children 2 and under (no ticket required).
