Something scary for the weekend
▪️Hallowe’en fan Jessi Sharp has made an online map of spooktacularly decorated houses for a personal drive around tour.
▪️The Sawmill at Lansdowne is a new, haunted attraction produced by Saunders Farm that combines both in-door and open-air elements as you tour the wreckage from the demolition of TD Place's Southside Stands. Oooooh.
▪️NarCity says that the village of Vaudreuil-Dorion – a mere 90 minute drive – has a, presumably unauthorized, Nightmare Before Christmas—themed pocket parkat the corner of Saint-Charles Avenue and Paul-Gerin-Lajoie Road.
▪️There is a walking tour of Haunted Stittsville every Friday and Saturday night.
▪️The first ever Mystic Market will be at the Red Apron on Gladstone. Crystals, Handmade Goods, Spells, Tarot Cards & Readings, Oddities, Home Decor, Vintage Clothing and more.
▪️Seoul Dog, purveyors of Korean-style hot dogs, is playing host to a Squid Game—themed Hallowe’en party Saturday and Sunday. Prizes for costumes!
▪️After a year's enforced absence, the Mayfair has brought back its traditional showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. But, and we cannot stress this enough – it's non-participatory this year. No throwing toast, no throwing toilet paper, no snarking back at the screen. Just be happy that the cinema is open.
▪️Likewise, The ByTowne has scary flicks of their own, Les Diaboliques, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Pieces, and The Beyond.
▪️Friday and Saturday, the Art House Café is presenting The Haunted Cathouse. Cocktails, games, costume contest.
▪️From Noon until 4pm, Whiprsnappr Brewing has a Hallowe’en Bells Corner scavenger hunt. Plus pumpkin carving and street food from Isina.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
