(l-r) ISU sophomore Seth Gardner of Urbandale, and junior Zach Schwake and senior David Rios, both of Aurora, Illinois, were part of the small army of volunteers this week who stenciled or carved pumpkins at Reiman Gardens. Spirits in the Gardens, which concludes with participants touring the garden grounds illuminated by a thousand jack-o'-lanterns, runs Saturday (4-10:30 p.m.) and Sunday (4-9:30 p.m.) evenings, Oct. 19-20. Advance ticket sales, with a $1 per person discount, conclude today.
