Hallowe’en is the most wonderful time of the year

I love Hallowe’en. Everything about it from the leaves changing, costumes, candy, horror movies, silly songs and of course trick-or-treating.

Here in London, Ontario, just before Hallowe’en there are all kinds of ways to enjoy this spooktackular holiday.

Friday, October 26

Museum London held their annual Devil’s Night party. The event always draws a good crowd for costume fun, appreciation of art and of course to enjoy good music.

Saturday, October 27

So many great events to choose from!

Wortley Village’s Halloween festival and parade (see pictures below)

London Zombie Walk

-Local clubs such as The Nite Owl also threw costume parties for those who want to roam after dark

Sunday, October 28

The Great Eldon House Ghost Hunt – Visit Eldon House just before Hallowe’en to learn its ghost stories from the last 176 years. Tour the house with a special “ghost map” and visit me and my research partner in crime Alex in the Interpretive Centre to discover more about the home’s famous apparition, Lieutenant Wenman Wynniatt. After the event, submit your photos here on this page! Admission by donation, main entrance

The Lost Soul Stroll – Great way to learn about London’s history. If you didn’t go already this month check to see if there are tickets left for Oct. 30!

Here are some pictures from Wortley’s Hallowe’en in the Village festival from this year!

There were some excellent costumes, full size skeleton puppets and plenty of games to keep you busy! My favourite float was Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf! He was huge and very scary! I also bumped into the Forest City Derby Girls who were there to support the event!
