Halloween is my favourite time of year. Lawn inflatables, kids in costumes, the controlled fear of watching scary movies all weekend, and of course, mini Snickers bars. So wrapping up this list of local spooktacular Halloween events was my pleasure!
Here’s our perpetually updated Guide to Spooky Fun in your neighbourhood. Have an event to add? Leave a comment and we’ll get it on our list for our readers to check out.
