A Maze in Corn Haunted Forest (St. Adolphe)

Disclaimer: Masks are mandatory in line and throughout the Haunted Forest trail. No costume allowed

Are you ready for an evening of fright, terror, and creatures lurking? A Maze in Corn’s Haunted Forest has come alive; their monsters are waiting for you if you dare to step foot. Navigate your way out of the forest, dodging the creatures of the night that are coming for you. Prebook your haunted experience and see if you have what it takes to survive the adventure.

While the forest is still spooky, younger children can enter the forest from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM (during the daytime). The monsters and ghouls seem to be slightly more mellow during these times.

Drive-in Movie Night (Lac du Bonnet)

Does anyone else miss Drive-in Movies? Well, you can get your fill on October 30! The Lac du Bonnet Sports Arena will be showing two Halloween movies for free – Beetlejuice and Gremlins. Grab your snacks from the canteen and have them delivered right to your car.

At Home Fun

This Halloween, like the rest of 2020, will be different. And it’s understandable if sending your children for Trick or Treating doesn’t seem safe. But that doesn’t mean that the Halloween spirit and fun has to end this year.

Instead of the good fashion Trick or Treating, purchase as much Halloween candy as your family wants and scatter it around the house. Your children will have loads of fun searching for the hidden candy. You can even make it a challenge and turn it into a scavenger hunt with clues.

The best part is since you’re purchasing the candy, you can decide what to buy. Instead of all candy filled with sugar, you can add a few healthier options in the mix. Whether it’s granola bars, fun knickknacks and toys, or even sugar-free gum, adding a few of these options will be great for your kid’s teeth and still be delicious!

Here are a few links to healthy alternatives to Halloween candy.
