MONTREAL, September 13, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Halloween is the time of year when the first frosts arrive, the leaves turn red, and the boundaries between worlds thin. The Sorcerer Kalbacius has taken the opportunity to cross those borders and create a refuge for himself and his fantastic creatures in the Main Greenhouse of the Botanic Garden!
Espace pour la vie invites all children (and their parents!), from October 1 to 31, to go out and give Kalbacius a hand. He has to return to his own world before midnight on October 31st! But he has a long way to go and he would be grateful for any help he can get!

The main greenhouse is in ruins! The Sorcerer Kalbacius has transformed him, establishing a temporary home for him and his menagerie of unusual creatures. The vampire gargoyle tunnel brings chills and thrills, the orchard and its weird scarecrow made of plants promise to keep everyone at bay, and the web of cat-spiders will give you goosebumps! Not to mention our crazy pumpkins, the spectacular Ghost Tree, and Kalbacius himself!
