Halloween Weekend In Collingwood
Fright this Way – Black Harvest Returns!
….with changes to keep all the little ghosts and goblins safe!
The tradition of Halloween and the Black Harvest Festival continues in historically Chilling Downtown Collingwood this October, with changes and additions incorporated to keep everyone safe. Join us downtown from October 28 to 31 for new adventures to celebrate the haunting season.
The spirit of the season has taken over many of the businesses; check out all the windows to see who has been put under the spell of the spirits…. Lots of scary jack-o-lanterns to see!
Travel the downtown to read the Halloween StoryWalk – Start at the beginning and find the pages of ‘Frankenstein Doesn’t Wear Earmuffs’, by John Loren as you follow each page of this spooky story right to the end!
Take the challenge of the Black Harvest Scavenger Hunt – find the 10 teal coloured pumpkins hidden in the windows downtown – to spell Halloween! – Download your entry form – complete with great hints to help you find them from the Collingwood Downtown website – www.collingwooddowntown.com. Three prizes will be awarded by draw from the winning entries. *Please note the entry form will be available to download on October 28th*
Of course, Black Harvest wouldn’t be complete without a contest to celebrate the wonderfully inventive costumes. This time you are invited to take a picture wherever you are – at home, downtown, at the park – prizes will be awarded in various age categories – from babes in arms to 10. This year there is even a new Family category added. Email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or post on social media using #CollingwoodBlackHarvest. Don’t forget to tell us how old you are!
The deadline for entry to both the Scavenger Hunt and the Costume Contest is at the ‘witching hour’ Midnight, November 1st.
Please note that due to the current restrictions, the traditional program of trick or treating hosted by our Collingwood Downtown businesses will not be taking place – but we hope to welcome that back next year!
This family-orientated Halloween celebration is a Collingwood tradition, join us, or else…. For further information, call 445-5595 or visit www.collingwooddowntown.com.
