Halloween is just around the corner and whether you prefer tricks or treats, there's something to delight ghouls and goblins of all ages. From family friendly pumpkin parades to the scariest of haunted houses, here's a few Halloween treats to check out.



Annapolis Royal Ghost Town

Few towns proudly call themselves a ghost town, but during the month of October, beautiful Annapolis Royal turns into a spooktacular site. Ghosts from the pages of "Bluenose Ghosts" haunt Sinclair Inn Museum and the walls of O'Dell House Museum have scary stories to tell. The town's History Gardens transform into the Ghostly Gardens After Dark where you can find a Witch's Lair and discover creatures inhabiting the Gardens.


There are daytime activities as well for those who prefer their haunting in the daylight.


RiverBreeze Corn Maze, Truro

Visit in the daytime for family fun in the corn maze, donkey rides, Bunnyville and the pumpkin upick.

If you love to be scared, come by RiverBreeze at night on Fridays and Saturdays for the Bloodfield's Fear Farm. With four haunted attractions on site, this year will double your fear and create all new nightmares. The Bloodfields are dying to meat you.

Captain Cobb's Corn Maze, Masstown Market

A favourite stop on any road trip, Masstown Market's Captain Cobb's Crazy Corn Maze is a destination for family fun in the fall. With Friday night movies like Hocus Pocus and Goonies, it's the perfect Halloween treat. 

Halifax Citadel Ghost Tour and Halifax Ghost Tours

Scarecrows and Pumpkin People
