Check out our round up of local events to help get you spooked this year.
Fun for all ages and perfect for your daily dose of exercise – why not check out the Ghost Walks hosted by the Oakville Historical Society. Join the Society volunteers for a guided walk around the oldest part of Town and hear about some of Oakville’s ghosts and haunted happenings. Perhaps you’ll see a spirit or two on your walk! The walks start at 110 King St. and last about an hour. Adults are $12 and children under 12 are $6. For dates and times check out the Oakville Historical Society website.
On Halloween night get really spooked at Scaresdale Manor, located at 480 Scarsdale Court in Southwest Oakville. Each year, this ordinary suburban residence transforms into the amusingly spooky ‘Scaresdale Manor’, an elaborate haunted yard display which is well-respected and eagerly anticipated by the community, featuring many hand-crafted props and creatures, roaming characters, and dynamic, custom-made digital animation!
