As a kick-off to Halloween in Hockessin, Gateway Garden Center hosted their Jack O’Lantern Jamboree event on Friday, Oct. 26 from dusk until 8 p.m.

The gardens were filled with lighted pumpkins carved by local artists and local business owners.

Children participated in a scavenger hunt, roasted marshmallows while parents sipped on warm apple cider.
