Collingwood Downtown invites you to celebrate the “Black Harvest”
It is said that as we approach all hallows eve, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead become blurred. Restless spirits move among us …. this is the time of the “Black Harvest”. Come downtown on Friday, October 30 to experience our third annual celebration of the Black Harvest and take a Haunted Walk through Collingwood’s Past!
As the downtown ignites its passion for Halloween, the streets will be a scary place…. with spiders, ghosts and witches placed carefully on the frightful tour. The shadowy streets will reveal the dark history, ghostly stories and unsolved mysteries of our downtown days gone by!
Children’s Activities and games for all the little ones in the family start at 4 p.m., under the tents in front of the Federal Building (just south of Loblaws). The children’s costume contest will start at 4:30 p.m. in front of the Federal Building. And, of course, our downtown merchants invite all the children to come for some early trick or treating from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Guided Tours of Collingwood’s Haunted Past will depart from the Federal Building beginning at 7 p.m. Hear the tales of Collingwood’s haunted past, complete with scary stories of the many ghosts that inhabit downtown. Tours will leave every ½ hour and are free, but you must pre-register at the Information Tent.
Returning this year! Don’t miss out on Collingwood’s second annual “Zombie Walk”! Everyone is invited to dress as a zombie and take part in the “Walk of the Undead” beginning at 6 p.m. from the corner of Hume and Hurontario Street.
