Fright this Way – Black Harvest Returns!
The tradition of Halloween and the Black Harvest Festival continues in historically Chilling Downtown Collingwood this October, with Witches (and Warlocks) of the ‘Wood taking over the town.
As the toe of newt and the eye of frog are added to the cauldron of Halloween festivities, the downtown streets will be decked out in all things frightening…. from Pumpkins and creatures of the night, to the feature attraction, Witches and Warlocks. The spirit of the season has also taken over many of the businesses; check out all the windows to see who has been put under the spell of the spirits.
On Friday, October 28th, experience the Haunted Walk of Collingwood’s Past. The escorted walk of our spooky downtown will begin from the Town Hall (under the clock tower), starting at 7:30 p.m. The tour is FREE, but please pre-register by calling 705-445-5595 to ensure your place.
On Saturday, October 29, the fun starts at 11 a.m., as activities will begin along Hurontario Street to put even the most skeptic of creatures into the haunted mood; awaiting is a cauldron of activities. Take a tour of the spooky, haunted bus parked just south of Town Hall. Get your ghostly balloon creation from the centre at Sheffer Court. Create your own spine-chilling Halloween pumpkin to take home in front of the Federal Building.
As the town hall clock strikes 3 pm all good little Witches and Warlocks and their friends will gather at the town hall for a costume contest for various age categories…. Judged by the Head Witch and Warlock!
Of course, our downtown merchants invite all the costumed good little girls and boys children to come for some early trick or treating….. just look for the Orange ‘Witch’ signs on the door or window to find out who has treats inside!
This family orientated Halloween fun is a Collingwood tradition. Join us, or else….
