Now that you have your Halloween costume chosen, and your house decorated, it’s time to decide how you are going to celebrate the holiday (besides trick-or-treating of course!). Here are a few haunted Halloween events and activities for people of all ages.
Saturday October 29 at 11am
Little ghosts and goblins ages 2 and up are invited to come to the Moncton Public Library in their Halloween costumes for some spooky (but not too spooky) stories, a craft and a costume parade around the library. Families are welcome.
Registration begins October 22
Oct 22, 23, 29 & 30, 2011, 11am-5pm (the zoo is open from 9am-6pm)
The Magnetic Hill Zoo has decided to discontinue their night time Boo at the Zoo events, and instead focus on a daytime Scaredy Cats event. There will be lots of fun activities and games for the little ones while visiting the zoo animals. For older children there will be some “moderately scary” Halloween venues. Be sure to come dressed up!
Tickets are only on sale at the door.
October 29, 2011, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The Moncton Museum is organizing a Halloween event for families at the Thomas Williams House (103 Park Street, Moncton). Come enjoy an afternoon of Halloween inspired events, including games, crafts, a costume contest and much more! Admission is free!

Saturday, October 29 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
For the adults, Casino New Brunswick is hosting a Halloween Spooktacular.
