Nova Scotia has a rich, seafaring history and also a strong military history. From shipwrecks and privateers to battles at the Fortress of Louisbourg, there are many stories to tell. So it only makes sense that these would evolve over time into legends and folklore we love at this time of year.This is what makes Nova Scotia such a perfect backdrop for some Halloween fun! Whether you are taking a ghost walk or tour where you are sure to learn some history that is not currently in the books. If you are just up for for some good spooky fun, we have something for you too! Here are just some of the haunted locations, spooooooooky ghost tours and fun-filled family events going on around the province.
All my life I've heard stories about Oak Island and its infamous treasure hunt. So much and yet so little has been discovered on this ill-fated island over the past couple hundred years, not to mention lives lost. I've always wanted to visit but assumed the privately-owned island was off limits to the public. Not so! I recently discovered Walk the Mystery Tours are offered at $10 a pop on many summer weekends. My friend Tracey and I were completely on board for this adventure and booked tickets a few weeks in advance. I'm glad we did because our tour sold out.
