Reminder: Free Halloween Events in Charlottetown

Reminder: Free Halloween Events in Charlottetown
Posted on 10/19/2020
The City of Charlottetown is reminding local ghosts, goblins, princesses, and superheroes that it has some exciting, free events planned in October.

Families are invited to come to the Beach Grove Nature Trail behind the Beach Grove Home on Saturday, October 24 from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. (noon) for the annual Great Pumpkin Walk. The event will look a bit different this year. Each family will be able to pick out a complimentary pumpkin (while supplies last) to carve at home. Families are encouraged to go for a self-guided walk along the Beach Grove Nature Trail or a trail of their choosing.

The Parks and Recreation Department has also launched a new initiative called Halloween BOOket-List Bingo. This family friendly game includes a variety of Halloween themed activities, such as: carve a pumpkin, pick out a Halloween costume, or make a craft. Children are invited, if they dare, to venture through the “friendly” haunted forest located behind the Victoria Park Baseball Clubhouse and present their completed Bingo cards on Saturday, October 24 to staff between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Each child that trades in a completed card will receive a treat bag (while supplies last). Bingo cards are available for download online at www.charlottetown.ca under Events & Initiatives, or pick up a printed card at City Hall (199 Queen Street) during office hours (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).

Participants of either event are asked to follow public health guidelines. The Halloween BOOket-List Bingo initiative is being held in lieu of the City hosted Halloween parties.
