Popular Annual Halloween Events and Shows
Mountsberg Spooktacular Halloween
This nighttime Halloween event is perfect for all ages. Choose a later time for bigger kids to experience a little more excitement, and little kids will love visiting at dusk or shortly thereafter. Read all about our visit here. You’ll enjoy a scavenger hunt, a spooky stroll through the woods. Prepare for some thrills and chills in the Haunted Barn (some displays are a littler scarier). Definitely wear your Halloween costumes. You can upgrade your visit to also include a wagon ride, hot drinks and s’mores. Spooktacular Halloween starts October 6th and runs Friday to Sunday evenings from 4:30 pm to 10 pm until October 29th.
Pumpkins After Dark at Country Heritage Park
Pumpkins After Dark is Canada’s award-winning outdoor Halloween event. Featuring over 10,000+ hand-carved pumpkins, this one-of-a-kind walk-through experience is the must-see event of the fall season. This is the biggest Halloween event in Milton. Perfect for all ages, and because it’s a walk through you can set your own pace, which we loved. Read about our visits here. Every year, the display gets bigger and better. You will find everything from your favourite video game characters to the scariest horror movie villains, all carved out of pumpkins. Wear a costume and purchase some Halloween treats.
Halloween Haunt and Camp Spooky at Canada’s Wonderland
No matter the occasion, Canada’s Wonderland has a celebration for everyone. Halloween Haunt is a fan favourite if you love jump scares, evil and being terrified. Enjoy seven mazes, terrifying scare zones, non-stop monsters, thrilling night rides and the return of the Day of the Dead Festival. 2023 brings you three new mazes including “Dark Ride” where guests must face the horrors waiting for them in an abandoned carnival attraction. Halloween Haunt is for the 13+ year olds, and no costumes or face makeup allowed. Camp Spooky is a family-friendly Halloween event you won’t want to miss! It’s on Saturdays and Sundays from Sept. 23 – Oct. 29, 2023.
