Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls, oh my! This month, our blog is completely Halloween inspired, and we’ve got something for everyone to enjoy! As always, we’ve got you covered, and ALL of these Halloween activities can be found right here in the Tri-Area.
1) Halloween Breakfast Social – October 20th from 9:00AM – 11:30AM at the Parkland Village Community Centre. Attention parents! Head over to the Halloween Breakfast Social and enjoy a day off from making breakfast for the whole family. The kiddos will enjoy some Halloween crafts, festive fun, as well as breakfast. Save yourselves from dirty dishes and breakfast duty! Admission for adults is $6. Kids 10 and under are FREE.
2) Spooky Series Escape Room – October 2nd to October 31st at the Spruce Grove Pubic Library. If you’ve got a teenager in your home, then look no further! For the entire month of October, the library is putting on a series of four different escape room puzzles for kids to enjoy. These puzzles are suitable for children over the age of 12. With varying degrees of difficulty throughout the month, be sure to check out the Spruce Grove Library’s website for more information on each escape room puzzle. Registration is required.
3) Sensory Sensitive Halloween – October 30th from 6:00PM – 8:00PM at Spruce Village Way in Spruce Grove. Let’s face it, not everyone is a fan of scary costumes, blaring noise, and large crowds on Halloween. That’s why, we’re showing some serious LOVE for this event. Sensory Sensitive Halloween is perfectly suited for kids, teens, and adults who for other reasons may not be able to participate in the traditional festivities that the 31st of October holds. This event has toned down decorations, no flashing lights, treats that are not food related, and neighbours that have been prepared to expect kids who may be non verbal or have mobility issues. Check out the event in greater detail by following this link.
4) Mini Monster Bash – October 26th from 10:00AM – 2:00PM at Heritage Park in Stony Plain. It’s that time of year again for the Mini Monster Bash! Kids aged 3-10 can dress up and enjoy Halloween-themed crafts, activities, and games. Make sure to dress for the weather because they’ll have a haunted house set up outside! This event is FREE, but you’re encouraged to bring a non-perishable donation for the Parkland Food Bank. Check out this link for more information.
5) Ghost Tours – October 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th from 7:00PM – 9:00PM at the Multicultural Heritage Centre in Stony Plain. Did you know that the Multicultural Heritage Centre is considered one of the most haunted locations in Alberta? Us neither! During the month of October, they put on some seriously spooky ghost tours. Visitors are shown around the grounds and told stories about eerie circumstances that have occurred throughout the history of the site. Past participants have experienced strange noises and have even been touched. All of which cannot be explained. Drag your older kids out to this event. We’re sure they’ll love it!
