A Virtual Celebration of the Season

Join us
Saturday, October 24th
7 pm
(The Garden Glow Showcase runs through November 30th)

Your Garden. Your Glow.


Now in its third year, this sell-out Ladew tradition will be presented with a socially distant twist.  This year we'll be presenting an online Garden Glow showcase of creative jack o’ lanterns carved by artists, celebrities, dignitaries, local businesses, and friends and neighbors, like you! Plus, there will be fun educational content for children including fascinating facts about creepy crawly creatures of the night, Irvine Nature Center’s resident owl, and other celebratory seasonal fun.


You are the key ingredient in this virtual Garden Glow…

The community is invited to carve your own jack o’ lantern for this festive virtual showcase. You may use your own pumpkin, or arrange to pick up a complimentary pumpkin at Ladew after you register to participate. Klein’s ShopRite has generously donated 300 pumpkins for Ladew’s Garden Glow… and there’s one waiting for you!


To participate as a Garden Glow pumpkin carver, please complete this Application Form by October 17th. Registered pumpkin carvers may pick up your complimentary pumpkin from October 8 - 12 and 15 - 17 (between 10 am - 2 pm) at Ladew, or you can provide your own. Please email a photo of your carved creation to by October 18th at 10 am so that we can include your jack o’lantern in our online Garden Glow showcase.

Stay tuned…
