Scary Events, family fun drive-bys and ghostly walking tours
The Haunted Sea returns to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site in Richmond BC. The month-long Halloween event has guests of all ages follow a path into the darkest depths of the sea. From 3-5 pm on October 31, pint-sized ghouls can wander the streets of Steveston Village to collect goodies.
Family friendly Halloween events are happening during “Ghouls’ Night Out” at Heritage Park in Calgary and ZooBoo is held at the Calgary Zoo. Both events are aimed at the miniature monsters in your house.
Take the kids (ages 12 and older) on a haunted walk through Old Strathcona in Edmonton with the Edmonton Ghost Tours. Fact or fictional tales will delight everyone.
“Dark” presented by Fort Edmonton is an online experience so you can leave as many lights on as you want while you virtually wander through Hotel Selkirk looking for ghosts.
Slayland at the PNE in Vancouver is keeping the scream meter dialled up for the older crowd. For the first time ever, witches, superheroes and aliens don’t have to hide their true identities. Yup, costumes are allowed. (No face paint or face coverings though) Tickets are bought in advance. Also at the PNE is this cool idea…the Drive-Thru Tricks & Treats. Buckle the horde of Halloweenies in the car and head down to the site. Drive through the staged events of spooky characters and Halloween décor. Every vehicle leaves with a bag full of goodies.
Usually Cobb’s Adventure Park in N.E. Calgary is all fun and games, but during Halloween, it’s the Field of Screams. Haunted houses and Halloween inspired outdoor events take over. However, the Pumpkin Palooza during the daylight hours will entertain the entire family. Tickets are sold in advance.
The Vancouver Police Museum is actually the former city morgue where maybe…just maybe there are still ghosts lingering about. Scared yet? The Morgue Ghost Tours is an evening of tours and tales but, limited to two nights and I’m happy to say…is sold out already. That means I can build up my courage for next year.
