Fright this Way (Posted On: Monday, October 17, 2011)

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 29th on your calendar and prepare to come downtown 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 creature into the haunted mood; waiting 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 can also 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!

As you wander the streets watch out for the Withes and Warlocks for they have Treats (no tricks) to share with all costumed good little girls and boys.

Starting at 5 PM an escorted Haunted Walk of the Historical District will take you on a tour of horrifying proportion for you to hear the tales of Collingwood’s frightful past.  Leaving from what is now Town Hall, this $5 (per person) tour will guarantee your safe return.  Tickets may be purchased throughout the day at the Information Tent adjacent to Town Hall.

This family orientated Halloween day is a Collingwood tradition, join us, or else....
