Halloween is always a great time to enjoy Oakville at the town’s best. There are haunted houses and ghost walks. Whether your a grandparent, parent or child, there is something for everyone to partake in. So stock up on those treats and enjoy Halloween in Oakville for 2015.
Here is a list of all the fun things to do in Oakville’s celebration of Halloween, staring this weekend:
Solingate Manor: October 20, 2015 to October 31, 2015
7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
If you haven’t yet made the trip to 111 Solingate Drive in October, you are certainly missing Oakville’s finest display of ghosts, goblins, witches and a wealth of Halloween treats. The reason this home has become such a Halloween success is that Mr. Wirtz has made it his passion each October to bring smiles and awe inspiring stares to the children of his neighborhood (and their parents). The home is on Solingate Drive just north of Lakeshore Road West and East of 3rd Line.
The Ghosts of Olde Oakville Walks: October 21, 2015 to October 28, 2015
Time: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The Ghost walks take approximately one hour and there are two walks offered per night, which are sponsored by the Oakville Historical Society. This is an extremely popular event so please contact the Society at (905) 844-2695 for tickets.
Monster March: Sunday, October 25, 2015
Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
This is a family-friendly event. Dress the kids up in their Halloween costumes and come on down to downtown Oakville. The Monster March starts around 1pm and completes a short walk (approx. 1km) to help raise awareness for The James Fund for Neuroblastoma Research at SickKids Hospital.
