We are less than a week away from Halloween and as we approach the holiday, we prepared a complete list of spooky attractions for you to enjoy in Muskoka. Check it out:
The Great Pumpkin Trail
Happening yearly in Huntsville, ON, The Great Pumpkin Trail is a community event for all ages, aimed to spook and not haunt. Taking place at Muskoka Heritage Place on the 31st of October, the event allows visitors to trick-or-treat in a traffic-free setting while strolling through Pioneer buildings decorated by local businesses and people. The promoters suggest that costumes and decorations are kept on the not-too-scary side as this event is also directed to younger trick-or-treaters.
You can visit The Great Pumpkin Trail at 88 Brunel Road, Huntsville, ON. Doors open at 5 pm and the last entry is at 7:30 pm (rain or shine). Tickets are $10.00 for families or $3.00 per head (which must be attached to a body).
Halloween Mini Golf & Trick-or-Treating
This event is great for all ages and marks the end of the season for the Northern Escapades Mini Putt. Coming back this year for its 6th edition, the event encourages visitors to wear their costumes to play through the decorated course. Players even get a treat bag to finish it all off.
Admissions are by donation to the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation. The event happens October 29th & 30th from 2 pm - 9 pm at 301 Ecclestone Dr. in Bracebridge, ON.
Paranormal Muskoka Tour of Woodchester
For those looking for something a bit scarier, how about a unique haunted heritage tour? Paranormal Muskoka is an organization promoting education and embracing positive spirituality regardless of religion or belief. Every Fall they promote Geo-Ghost Tours exploring the haunted heritage of Huntsville. The tour explores three haunted landmarks and, if you´re brave enough to join, you will be exploring two of them on a self-guided tour (yes, ON YOUR OWN!) until you meet the team to explore the last sight.
Once you sign up you will receive exclusive videos, tips and tricks to explore and learn about the haunted spots by yourself. They also provide a route to follow. The guiding team will be stationed at one location with ghost boxes, emf meters, temp gauges, night vision and a medium or two.
The tour costs $20 per person and lasts around 3 hours. You can learn more on their website. Do you think you can handle it?
Tiny Tots Parade
Start your day at the traditional Huntsville Tiny Tots Parade. For this event, kiddos wearing Halloween costumes take over the sidewalks to trick or treat along downtown Huntsville's shops. The meet-up happens at the steps of Town Hall and parades through the city’s merchants.
This year the event is happening on October 29th at 10 am and you should bring something to carry the candies.
Halloween Drone Show
Happening after the Tiny Tots parade, the Halloween Drone Show is part of the Halloween Costume Bash: a party happening in the parking lot of Rivermill Park in downtown Huntsville. Aside from the amazing drone show, there will be Huskylight Psychic Readings with Daniella and a beer garden serving local brews.
The event happens on October 29th from 5 pm - 9 pm with the Illuminate the Night Halloween drone show starting at 7 pm sharp! You don’t want to miss this!
