Spend the weekend before Halloween with the haunted spirits of the past! Heritage Park’s Ghouls’ Night Out is one of the city’s most beloved Halloween traditions and this year it’s happening over four days, including one with an earlier start and end time, perfect for families with early bedtimes. During Ghouls’ Night Out (October 27-30), Heritage Park will be transformed into a ghost town, full of activities to get ghouls big and small into the Halloween spirit.
Visitors can take a spooky stroll down the park’s well decorated streets, meet the ghoulish residents of the village’s haunted houses, attend the Witches Flying School, have a freaky feast as they decorate a “Ginger-dead Man” cookie, drop in for storytelling and crafts with wizards and witches, do the Mash – the Monster Mash at the family dance, and have a wonderfully weird tea party with the Mad Hatter. Don’t miss the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration in the Canmore Opera House and be sure to keep your eyes open for spooky dance mobs, scarecrows and their pumpkin patches, Carnivale games of chance and other surprises that could pop up anywhere!
Ghouls’ Night Out takes place outdoors for the most part, so be sure to dress for the weather with warm layers, mittens, hats, and gloves (as well as your Halloween costume, of course!). Wear comfortable footwear and feel free to bring a stroller or wagon to help little ones get around. Don’t forget your camera to capture memories of your little ghouls as well as your flashlight to help you find your way once it gets dark! Heritage Park has more tips & tricks online to help you make the most of this fun event.
This special event is best suited to kids aged 3 to 9 and their parents. Tickets are only $10.25 for Old Spirits (anyone aged 13+) and $6.95 for Little Ghouls (aged 3 to 12). Children 2 and under get in free. Parking is $5/day before 5 pm, $3 after 5 pm.
Tickets will not be available at the gate if a session is sold out – and this frequently happens – so we recommend purchasing yours online now! Then start planning your costume and counting down to a ghostly good time!
