Halloween is always a fun and exciting time of year. It’s when the ghost and goblins come out and play and the best Halloween movies are on. In the spirit of Halloween, we have this list of Ways to Celebrate Halloween in Eastern Manitoba so you can get the best out of your Spookober. Whether you want to jump and scream at a haunted house or do something a little more family-friendly, we have it all!
If terror and fright are what you are looking for in Halloween then you’ll find it at Anola’s Terror on 12. Travel through the haunted estate and (hopefully) find the way out of your worst nightmare come to life.
In this 40-minute interactive haunting experience, be prepared to have your courage and mind tested as you make your way through the twist, turns and monsters that belong to Terror on 12.
Deer Meadow Farms has two very exciting Halloween events!
If you’re looking for something that will make you scream and raise the hairs on your body then The Forbidden Forest & Haunted Hayride is perfect for you. Take a ride in the Haunted Hayride if you dare and head to the entrance of the Forbidden Forest where the nightmare really begins, as you will have six hellish sets to survive through (Cemetery, Clown Box, Castle, Wolf’s Lair, The Asylum and The Witch’s Hut).
On the lighter side, Storybook Lane is the perfect family attraction and isn’t scary at all! Journey through the forest trails by wagon train and have the chance to meet your favourite storybook and nursery rhyme characters. You might even get a treat or two along the way!
Oh no! White-nose Fun-guy is chasing Betty the Bat! On October 19th, enjoy the exciting night hike in beautiful Birds Hill Park as you help Betty the Bat and learn from guests from the UWinnipeg-Willis Bat Lab to discover the work they do to help bats fight white-nose syndrome. They will also be other family activities such as crafts, face painting and a bonfire.
Have you ever wanted your very own magic wand? Here’s your chance not only to have one but make it yourself right in Beausejour! On October 18th or 19th, enjoy the day crafting away with a hot cup of coffee or tea as you create wands and potion labels to fit onto your jar full of magically yummy candy.
Let’s be honest, there should be more days in the year to dress up and get free candy. Well, now there’s one more day at Lac du Bonnet’s Trunk or Treat. Go Trick or Treating from trunk to trunk on October 26 and see wacky costumes and cool decorated cars. There are also lots of fun games for everyone to play, hot chocolate and apple cider and best of all – the Lion’s Club Pac Man Maze.
Bonus: Spirits on 406
Spirits on 406 is back! The great part about this event is that it has both a family-friendly section and a terrifying haunted house for those who are ready to face their fears.
From October 24 to October 26, children of all ages can go on a scavenger hunt while exploring the creepy Shack in the Back. For those who are ready for a challenge, on October 25 and 26, you have a chance to experience the most twisted Halloween theme yet . . . Christmas. Try to find your way out of the haunted Christmas house as Santa Claus, Rudolph and all your favourite Christmas characters turn into your worst nightmare.
