By Admin User on October 21, 2022

If you’re anything like me, you’re beyond excited that Halloween is fast approaching. Here are some of the best things to do in Edmonton to celebrate the year’s best holiday. From a frightening date night to a chill evening with the family, this list has got you covered on the best things to check out.

  1. DARK

Dark is back at Fort Edmonton Park and scarier than ever! With haunts that include killer clowns, the aftermath of a fungal parasite, and even blood-thirsty killers in the countryside, it’s no doubt that Dark has upped its spook factor. While there, you can also check out local food trucks and grab a spooky cocktail while listening to a live DJ. Dark is one of Edmonton’s best Halloween attractions.

2. Pumpkins After Dark

With over 6000 hand-carved pumpkins, Pumpkins After Dark is a must-see this Halloween season. This family-friendly walk takes you through Borden Park, where you can see some of the most intricate carved pumpkin displays. Feeling inspired after seeing all of that incredible pumpkin art? You can pick out and carve your own pumpkins to take home! It’s no wonder why Pumpkins After Dark is an award-winning Halloween event.

3. Halloween Movies at Metro Cinema

Our friends at Metro Cinema are playing a wide array of Halloween favourites this October. From the Addams Family to the Thing, there’s a Halloween classic for everyone to see. What better place to watch a spooky movie than in a vintage theatre? Metro Cinema is the perfect place to set the spooky mood and enjoy a film with some popcorn. You can also catch their 9th Annual Halloween Metro Mash at the end of the month, where you can catch a whole marathon of Halloween flicks. 

4. Edmonton Ghost tours in Old Strathcona

This ghostly walk-through of Old Strathcona is the perfect way to learn about the neighbourhood’s bone-chilling past. With stories from residents and shop owners, this tour helps you discover the darker side of Edmonton. Explore some of Edmonton’s most significant historical landmarks while hearing eerie tales of ghouls, hauntings and murders.
