Giant Iron Man catching eyes of families in Brampton.

Nick Desjardins, a construction worker  started building giant sculptures outside of his Brampton home as a way of challenging himself, and through the years, they’ve become a must-see attraction around his neighbourhood come Halloween.

Families have flocked towards Peterson Court in the Heart Lake area to get a glimpse of his creations, first a Transformer, then a fire-breathing dragon and now, a 17-foot-tall Iron Man.

Desjardins got help from a number of friends and business in the project.

This year Desjardins’ project will benefit a worthwhile cause. Both of his good friend Lyndsay Wilfred’s children were born with epilepsy, so Wilfred and Desjardins worked together to put together a fundraising event on Oct. 21.Funds are going toward Epilepsy South Central Ontario and on Halloween night, Desjardins will have a grand set up surrounding his house complete with lighting, a DJ, scaffolding and a picture taking area around the Iron Man.

Aside from building an attraction, Desjardins hopes children will see what can be accomplished with hard work through the project.
