2017 Halloween will be a great time to enjoy Oakville. There are haunted houses and ghost walks. Whether you are a grandparent, parent or child, there is something for everyone to do. So design your costume, and stock up on those tricks and treats and enjoy Halloween in Oakville 2017.

Teal Pumpkin Project

Something to think about when you are setting up your decorations to ensure all the children who visit your door are looked after: put out a Teal Pumpkin. The Teal Pumpkin project encourages families to have food or items that are hypo-allergenic, and for children to know that what they receive is safe for them.

Here is a list of all the fun things to do in Oakville’s celebration of Halloween 2017:

Solingate Manor/Halloween House:

October 14, 2017 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. Donations are accepted for the Oakville Foodshare Program.

The Ghost walks take approximately one hour and there are one to three 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. Tickets are also available online.
