Halloween Enchanted Garden flutters into town Oct. 29

FORT COLLINS – October 17, 2016 – Forget the ghosts and goblins…imagine fairies, furry friends and everything fun at the Gardens on Spring Creek, 2145 Centre Ave, at the ninth annual Halloween Enchanted Garden on Saturday, October 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event is one of the only candy-free Halloween celebrations in Fort Collins.

• Giant Kerplunk and Jenga;
