When one thinks of Halloween and spooky stuff, witches, magic, ghosts and all things occult usually come to mind. However, this year, GlasGLOW is bringing back Ghostbusters questioning the true meaning of existence and life beyond death. Between October 27 and November 12, Glasgow Botanic Gardens will be transformed into the spooky world of the beloved Ghostbusters.
The adventure trail will take up to 70 minutes, bringing chills and thrills to guests of all ages as well as some feel-good interactive light installations. The dopamine-inducing art installations will bring some anticipation and excitement to Glasgow as the days turn darker into October and the clocks go backwards on October 29.
GlasGLOW will be celebrating the event’s sixth successful year in 2023, it has become a sold-out show every year, loved by locals and visitors alike. Each year the theme changes, bringing a new aspect of escapism to life: and this year, it is breaking the veil between dimensions.
On top of enjoying the spooktacular world of Ghostbusters, visitors will have the chance to visit the famous Marshmallowland where they can toast smores by the campfire with marshmallow skewers. Guests will also find the West End’s most-loved dessert shop’s Loop & Scoop stand, as well as Mangiamo, Dirty Bird, Fries Guys and Brigston & Co Artisan Hotdogs.
Creator of GlasGLOW and Itison CEO, Oli Norman, said: “It takes a team of 150 to bring GlasGLOW to life and create a world-class show that we’re really proud to put on in our home city. This year’s route is jam-packed with adventure that everyone can enjoy, with plenty of photo opportunities, as well as some of the city’s best food and drink vendors keeping everyone energised enough to take on the various creatures dotted around the Gardens.”
Moreover, The itison Pumpkin Fund will also return having raised £60,000 for local charities since 2019, spreading pumpkin joy around the city and donating over 6,000 tickets to local community organisations, hospitals and charities.
It looks like it’s going to be a unique Halloween season this year, and you can book your tickets here.g
