Hundreds of jack-o-lanterns wait at Gardengate
Gardengate will host its seventh annual Pumpkins of Light Festival today (Oct. 25) from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at its site at 915 Southill St.
The public can wander a path illuminated by hundreds of carved pumpkins, designed by neighborhood school students, government agencies, non-profit societies, and community groups.
This year’s creations were made possible by Parkcrest, Kay Bingham and Lloyd George elementaries, Kamloops Christian and Our Lady of Perpetual Help schools, the Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops, along with other community mental-healthy organizations.
All pumpkins used in the display were grown on site at the Gardengate Training Centre.
Once the event is over, the carved pumpkins will be returned to the children so they can display them in their homes on Halloween night.
There is no cost to attend and it is appropriate for all ages.
