Have A Spooktacular October!
Halloween is quickly approaching! If you haven’t finalized your Halloween plans we have a few recommendations on thrilling ways to spend these last couple weeks of October!
If you want to be scared, then Scream Fest is for you. Every Friday and Saturday in October the Grandstand at Stampede Park transforms into spooky haunted houses with plenty of rides and games to keep everyone entertained. Make sure to try out the new frightening “Clown Town” haunted house or the bone chilling “Neighbours from Hell” simulator ride. Both will be sure to raise hairs! Click here

If you don’t like getting spooked but still want to get your heart rate up, the Calgary Marathon Society is hosting the city’s only Halloween race that is both family-friendly and pet friendly. Work up an appetite for sweets and support the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society. The race takes place at the Eau Claire Plaza on October 24th at 5:00 pm.

Calgary Zombie Walk
The zombie apocalypse is coming to Calgary! With a hunger for human flesh, the zombies will be gathering for the annual Zombie Walk on Saturday October 17, 2015. This epic walk will kick off at the Olympic Plaza (228 8th Avenue SE) at 1:00 pm. Zombies will overrun Stephen Avenue where they will then loop around down 4th Street and roam west down 17th Avenue. There is no cost to take part in this blood dripping event, but be sure to bring a non-perishable food item to help the Calgary Food Bank and of course be sure to dress in your blood soaked zombie gear and finest prosthetic scars.
Have a safe Halloween!
