Despite everything looking a little different this year, our candy-loving holiday is still ready to be celebrated; just with some unique twists. So if you’re on the hunt for some Halloween fun, here’s our events round-up for 2020.
October 31 | 4:30-9pm
Who said Halloween wasn’t going to happen? Candy Cruise was the very first Halloween event to spring up back in early September. Since then organizers have been working with dozens of organizations and businesses to provide a safe, unique and fun experience for kids across the city. Each designated location will have its own unique twist, from entertaining cosplayers, take-home crafts, costumes and of course mountains of candy to give to the little ones.
Virtual Murder Mystery Party
October 29 | 7-8:30pm
Happening just a few days before Halloween, this event is guaranteed to get you in the spooky spirit of Halloween. Hosted by the Prince George Library, fans of a good murder can embrace an evening of lying and sleuthing in this interactive murder mystery party! Register before October 23.
October 30 & 31 | 5-9pm
For two nights, the orchard at Northern Lights Estate Winery will be transformed into a spooky paradise. Over 150 pumpkins, a haunting photo booth and a little treat for the kids is all to be had. Admission runs at $2 a person and must be purchased in advance. Your ticket includes a $3 coupon towards a wine bottle purchase, and a twenty-minute window to enjoy a festive pumpkin paradise.
October 31, 2020 | 1-4pm
Join 101.3 The River and a variety of local businesses and organizations for a parking lot party (with social distancing of course). Pack the kids into the car, and participate in a drive-through trick or treating event guaranteed to put a smile on their faces. Businesses will have spooky stations throughout the parking lot and families need only roll down their windows to collect some sweet treats before heading home.
What About Traditional Trick or Treating?
Traditional trick or treating is still a go, but participants are encouraged to make special adjustments to keep themselves and trick or treaters safe. Following the advice of the BC Centre for Disease Control, trick or treaters should incorporate a mask into their costume, stay within their own neighbourhoods and stay within your limited physical distancing bubbles. You can read the full list of recommendations here.
