Looking for something to do this Halloween weekend? We have what you need.
After the pandemic canceled or drastically curtailed Halloween events last year, many have made a comeback for 2021.
Trunk or treat
Trunk or Treat is back for 2021! Every year, companies park their vehicles and offer candy to costumed children through decorated trunks. This year will be more spread out than in previous years, as they wrap around the area between 102nd Street and 104th Street on 100th Avenue in downtown. In addition to the festivities, the event organizers will be accepting donations for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank. Trunk or Treat will take place on Saturday (October 30) between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. and is a free walk-in event.
Trick-or-Treat at the Library
While you fill your bags with treats at Trunk or Treat, why not stop by the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library? Not only do they have a lot of scary books to check out, but they will also be having a treat or treat event from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in front of the Town Hall / Library building. There will also be a self-directed spooky photo booth.
Howll’een Manor is a Halloween haunted house located at 8413 99 Ave. The biggest haunted house is not open this year; however, the organizers will have a “mini maze” up front with a number of scares to make the night fun. They also promise something very special for Halloween.
Outdoor Halloween Dance – Morinville
The City of Morinville is organizing a free family event (with a donation to the Morinville Food Bank), the Outdoor Family Fright Halloween Dance. The evening will be complete with a photo booth, food trucks, prizes and dancing.
The event will take place Friday (Oct. 29) from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the rear parking lot of the Morinville Community Cultural Center. Parking is available at the center or at the Morinville community high school. It will be held weather permitting and will follow AHS restrictions – guests must maintain a physical distance of two meters and masks are optional outdoors.
DARK: Fort Edmonton Park
DARK is back for its fourth year and features three Haunted Houses. Plus, your ticket grants you access to an on-site Halloween festival with food trucks, drinks, and shows.
For the brave, Dead Edmonton has two haunted houses this year; Veil and Twilight – Rise of the Dead. Dead Edmonton House is located at 7031 Gateway Boulevard in Edmonton.
Healthy Halloween Activities in Strathcona County
Strathcona County is hosting free Halloween skates on Sunday (October 31) afternoon at Ardrossan Recreation Complex, Moyer Recreation Center, Glen Allan Recreation Complex, Strathcona Olympiet Center and an accessible skate at Broadmoor Arena. Don’t forget to wear your costume!
RCMP and Law Enforcement officers are handing out “positive contracts,” which will grant one-time free entry to county recreation facilities. Emergency services teams will join in the fun of Halloween by handing out treats as well.
