Halloween at Rollin

Halloween is the perfect day to spend at the Rollin Art Centre. This family friendly event begins at 11 a.m. outside on the terrace, where you will pick a pumpkin and begin carving. It’s $5 per pumpkin.

If you can’t make the day of carving, you can take it home to carve but don’t forget to bring it back for the light up and possibly win a prize and ribbon in your age group. Starting at 4 p.m. the gardens will be a maze of brightly lit jack-o-lanterns. Vote as many times as you like for your favourite carved pumpkin. It’s $2 per vote and proceeds go to BC Children’s Hospital and future children’s programming. Some carving tools will be on hand.
