It’s been such an amazing fall this year.
The weather’s been warm and sunny, and the leaves seem to be staying up longer than last year (by about 3 days—an amazing feat in Edmonton!).
It sure doesn’t feel like it, but Halloween is creeping around the corner. People across our city are getting their costumes and readying for the sugar-induced insanity that is Halloween in Edmonton!
People have different ways of celebrating the occasion. Some dress up with their kids and head out trick or treating. Others prefer to stay in and provide candy to little ones (and protect their front doors, should pranksters get too few treats).
But for other adventurous folks, the week of Halloween offers them an opportunity to explore the spookier side of the city, getting a taste of Edmonton that is as old as our community, one that is especially strong on these misty October nights.
Edmonton Ghost Tours: Unforgettable and Spooky Fun
One of our city’s worst kept secrets is the Edmonton Ghost Tours running from October 6-30 this year. Two tours will be taking place over these weeks, one throughout Old Strathcona, the other throughout the University of Alberta and the Garneau neighbourhood. (Check the website above for the dates and times, as they change depending on the day of the week.)
Edmonton’s colourful and rich history makes it easy for enterprising historians and culture lovers to create amazing community groups like Edmonton Ghost Tours. One of the great things about this city is its ability to embrace creative and new ideas and ways of looking at things. It’s what has gotten through the hard times of the past, and it’s the very thing that will help to guarantee our success in the future. Supporting activities, events and energy like this is something that we can all enjoy because it’s at the core of our community.
Hope to see you out on the ghost tours this year. There’s not much time left, so book yourself and get out there!
