“Haunted Harbour” will be a fun (and spooky!) evening at Discovery Harbour, where all manner of characters and creatures will take root at the historic site, sure to fright and delight even the most wary of traveller. Stroll the ghostly historic properties along candlelit paths, and peer into the historic buildings to see what awaits. Watch out for witches, a bag of bones, a giant spider, skeletons, a beating heart, eerie graveyard, “living” trees, and lots of wiggly critters – be careful where you step! Pirate fans will love the House o’ Loot where the bounty overflows, and little folks can try their hand at a special Hallowe’en craft. Admission’s just $5.00 per person plus a non-perishable food item (which will be donated to the local Food Bank). Children ages 5 and under are free.
