The crisp chill of fall is back in Hamilton, and with it comes the official start of spooky season.
To mark the occasion, the Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) is bringing back its annual Great Pumpkin Trail: the perfect family-friendly affair for the arrival of autumn.
Taking place at the RBG’s Hendrie Park and running from October 21st to 23rd as well as October 28th to 30th, The Great Pumpkin Trail features hundreds of hand-carved jack-o-lanterns glowing in gorgeous candlelight after dark.
