Here are the 2018 Halloween Displays in Oakville that are worth driving to see. The creators of these displays put in hours of hard work and money to bring joy. Their work is incredible.

One of Oakville’s most famous displays is The Haunted Backyard. Mike Wilson created it 22 years ago.  His goal was to  entertain young people in a safe environment. Since that time, The Haunted Backyard has remained free.

He is quick to point out, that it wouldn’t have continued with out community support. After this summer’s incredible wind storm the displays were destroyed. Thankfully, Rona stepped up and provided all the supplies at no cost. Also volunteers dress up as clowns, goblins, and other scary creatures. However, he has taken a number of steps to make sure that little  children always feel safe.

The Haunted Backyard opens every Friday and Saturday during October from 6 to 9 pm. Each day about 700  people walk thru the haunted maze. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get through. On Halloween Night well over 1,000 people come through.

During October 2018, The Haunted BackYard was visited 4,000 people.

A several years back, Mike decided that visitors might give to the Canadian Cancer Society. They did.  Since then, the Haunted Backyard raised over $20,000. Mike hopes to raise $10,000 this year.  Visitors do not have to give to gain access. All are welcome.

During October 2018, The Haunted BackYard raised $10,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, making a total contribution of $30,000.

If a visitor donates $20 or more they are entered into a draw for prizes which local businesses donated. Downtown Oakville’s Cobb’s Bakery donated a prize for a loaf of bread every week for a year.

On Halloween Night, the Canadian Cancer Society will be out so you’ll be able to make a donation using your credit card. All donations received from every night are all given to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Finally, there is always a prize for the best costume. You just need to post your picture on their Facebook Group. There is a special place to take pictures at the end of the maze.

Here are the displays that you will want to take the time to see:
