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. Mark Saturday October 25th, 2014 on your calendar and prepare to come downtown between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to see what is brewing.
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.
Starting at 11 a.m. activities will begin along Hurontario Street to put even the most skeptic of creatures into the haunted mood; awaiting is a cauldron of activities. For some frightful face time, face painters will be assisting those who would like to be disguised at Sheffer Court. You may also put your request in for your favourite balloon creation to take home. Create your own spine - chilling Halloween pumpkin to take home in front of the Federal Building. Along Hurontario Street, other terrifying activities will be taking place throughout the day.
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 day is a Collingwood tradition, join us, or else.
