Reiman Gardens: Spirits in the Gardens

Central Iowa has a lot of great Halloween events in the next few weeks including Spirits in the Gardens at Reiman Gardens in Ames. We visit Reiman Gardens a few times of year, but last year was our first time attending this spooky, family-friendly event.

The event is full of trick-or-treating, activities, storytelling and hundreds of carved lit pumpkins around the gardens.

Activities include: Meet-A-Scientist, a professional magician, dancing to Thriller and more. Stay into the evening to view 1,000 hand-carved Jack-O-Lanterns lit against the night sky.

Dress up in costume and bring your bags so you can stroll around the gardens, and grab some candy. Enjoy storytelling and more!

Advance tickets will be available starting October 1 and will be valid for a one-time visit either Saturday or Sunday. Members are $3 in advance and $4 at the door. The general public tickets are $5 in advance and $6 at the door. No refunds.
