On Saturday, Oct. 26 the Aldergrove Business Association is pleased to host its third annual Wall-O-Lantern event, this year being held at Philip Jackman Park in Aldergrove.

Each year the ABA partners with a local charity to bring awareness to their cause and to hold a community fundraising event.

“This year we have partnered with the Langley School District Foundation,” said ABA President Paul Walker.

“We are excited to bring a free family event to the families in the Lower Mainland. With a huge line up this year including pumpkin carving, a bouncy castle, rock climbing wall, kids activity tent, tattoo artist, as well as Science World on site, we hope to see you out.”

As in previous years the main attraction is the large pumpkin tower that the ABA builds to display nearly 800 carved pumpkins at the end of the day. With the lights being turned on at the lighting ceremony at 7 p.m., you don’t want to miss it.

Charlotte Diamond will once again be performing a children’s concert from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with special stage shows throughout the day presented by Science World.
