Happy Halloween: Events in Edmonton

It’s Halloween tomorrow! And, although it’s last minute, there are still things to do in Edmonton if you suddenly find yourself available.

You can head to the Rec Room at West Edmonton Mall for the Halloween Carnival. There’s a costume contest, and your entry fee ($25 if you buy in advance, $30 at the door) covers unlimited game play.

If you aren’t into games, but still want some adult fun, you can head to Privé Ultralounge for their Halloween Festival. It’s billed as Edmonton’s Biggest Halloween Costume Party of the Year, so there’s that. Plus, Halloween-themed drink specials (maybe a martini with an eyeball?).

Are you more into popcorn and a movie? There are three horror movies that opened on October 25th that you can go see tomorrow to spook up your evening and have you losing sleep. If clowns are your particular spook poison, you can see the new IT movie, IT: Chapter Two. If you secretly think tech will be our demise, then go be haunted by Countdown, the movie about the app that predicts your death (and maybe causes it?). And, if zombies are more your particular fright choice, the Zombieland sequel (Zombieland: Double Tap) is finally out. Good, clean, brain-eating fun!

If in-the-flesh scares are more your thing, then consider the Lakeland Haunted House, especially if you have appropriately aged kids that love to scream. It’s free, but a donation to the Strathcona County Food Bank or Zoe’s Animal Rescue is always appreciated.

If you’ve got young kids and don’t want to walk the streets trick or treating, then you can always head to Bonnie Doon Centre from 4-7 for a photo booth, balloon artist, face painting, crafts, mini golf and, of course, candy.

So – what’ll it be? What are you up to on this most haunted of days?
