Montreal Zombie Walk

Montreal is home to the largest zombie walk in Canada! Last year saw 10,000 zombies clamour through the streets of the city. Every October since the zombie walk started back in 2008 has been larger than the last. To be a part of it just come in your best zombie face, and meet everyone at the Place des Festivals.

Fright by Night at La Ronde

What’s better than a day at the amusement park? How about a night at the amusement park where you can visit haunted houses like ‘‘The Midnight Mansion’’ or ‘‘The Forgotten Laboratory?’’ During this time of the year La Ronde is also crawling with zombies, monsters, and evil clowns. If you’re a fan of thrill rides and goosebumps, then the ‘‘Festival de la Frayeur’’ is definitely for you.


Museum Halloween Events

Who says getting spooked can’t also be educational? Plenty of famous Montreal museums love to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Halloween by putting up special exhibits; Pointe-à-Callière, the Biodome, the Insectarium, and the Stewart Museum, just to name a few. Each exhibit is specially catered to the theme of what they teach, and Halloween. So why not go to the Montreal Botanical Garden with Esmeralda the witch and check out their more than 800 squashes, pumpkins, and gourds.
