MONKTON — Ladew Gardens presents its second annual Garden Glow — an exciting event for the entire family that has become a new Ladew tradition. This unique celebration of fall features illuminated sculptures, hundreds of glowing jack o’ lanterns, live music, and food & spirits. Special educational exhibits will give guests new insights into creepy crawly critters. Local artists will create glowing art works that will be on display.

Garden Glow, which sold out last year, will take place Saturday, Oct. 19, and Sunday, Oct. 20, from 5 to 9 p.m. each day, at Ladew Gardens, 3535 Jarrettsville Pike, Monkton.

Prior to the start of Garden Glow, the community is invited to participate by creating a “glow” or by carving a pumpkin to be included among the works on display.

Proceeds from Garden Glow will benefit Ladew’s environment educational pro-gramming for children which provides vitally important, experiential outdoor programs for up to 5,000 students a year and has a long-standing commitment to serving Maryland’s Title One schools.
