Gardner Village at Halloween

One of the most picturesque places to shop in Utah is historic Gardner Village in West Jordan. And there is no better place to get a family-oriented Halloween experience.

During the month of October, Gardner Village is over run with witches: witches playing baseball, witches riding flying bicycles, witches having hoola hoop contests…they’re everywhere.

During the month of October, Gardner Village has a petting zoo, pony rides, and Halloween themed adventures for kids including “Ride to a Witch” and “Breakfast with a Witch.” Gardner Village has also created several optimal spots for family photographs.

In my exploration of “all-hallowed” things, I recruited five fellow adventurers of various ages (2, 7, 9, 11, 13) and a few parents. On the “Ride to a Witch” we rode out to Cricket Hollow and were given a tour of a witches base camp set up in an old railway car. Gardner Village’s witch royalty were in attendance and happily interacted with the children, helping them stir cauldrons, hang up witches’ bloomers on the laundry line, etc.

My oldest two female fellow adventurers (ages 11 and 13) were more interested in the shops (like the gorgeous Anastasia’s Attic) and the glitter eye treatments available outside of the shop Purse-onality. Extremely affordable witch makeovers are also available at the Cottage Retreat Day Spa.

Gardner Village encourages the enthusiastic Halloween spirit, and parents bring their children in costume all throughout the month. I can’t think of a better place to get a picture of your little ones in costume.
