Thankfully if you live here in Halifax you have pretty unlimited options especially if you like to be scared (and hopefully get some lingering hugs and hand holding as well)
The first on my most date list is the Halifax Ghost Walk. Starting at dusk at the town clock on Citadel Hill your tour guides you through the scariest parts of downtown Halifax. Our city has survived colonization, and the Halifax Explosion, but there are many spirits who still linger.
If you’re able to venture out of the city another fun night out at this time of year is the Haunted Hollow in Hammonds Plains. At the Haunted Hollow you are left to your own devises for a night time hike through a Haunted wood. It is totally creepy, tons of fun, and all proceeds go to different charities each year which makes it worth it for even the biggest scared- y-cat!
New to me this year is the Haunted House at Noggins Farm in Wolfville, NS – if you were every afraid of things that go bump in the night, this is the activity for you. Wandering alone through an abandoned farm house late at night, will give you the fright of your life – and maybe even your last one?!
They say a farmers corn field is filled with hope and dreams, but this corn field is filled with corpses and screams. The Riverbreeze Haunted Corn Maze in Onlsow, NS – I can’t even look at their website without peeing my pants a little. I mean, there is nothing that I can ever tell you that could express how scarry this place actually is. Wandering through a corn field in the middle of nowhere (I mean Onslow is actually OUTSIDE of Truro, you’re really in the middle of nowhere) how is that not an amazing night out in October?
I don’t want to say too much about any of these activities because in my experience the least you know the more fun it will be, but this is the last weekend for each of these attractions, so take advantage of the gorgeous weather and get out there – really won’t regret it!
