“We’re trying to look for a different approach to encourage families to come and have some fun on Halloween,” said Shelsea Closs, administrative assistant at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame & Museum.

“We have activities for people of all ages – some are for toddlers, some are for kids and we even have some for adults. We want to encourage people to come in costumes, as they are definitely welcome. We have some Halloween games and a treat or prize for everybody when they arrive.”

On Oct. 30th, RDC will be presenting a ‘Classical Haunts’ event that showcases musical talents of RDC students. The event will go from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Costumes are encouraged, and tickets are available through the Black Knight Inn Ticket Centre.

Kiddies can take to Bower Mall on Halloween from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. to trick-or-treat at 115 locations. Photos can be taken at Centre Court from 4 – 7 p.m.

The Collicutt Centre is hosting a Halloween ‘Medieval Fair’. There are an abundance of events around the Collicutt Centre, from drop-in gymnastics, to pool time, to a drop-in skate session and a field-house full of events for kids.

“We are hosting a Halloween family event in collaboration with CrossRoads Church and Word of Life Church. They are awesome; they bring in volunteers and watch over the kids in the soccer pitches, where there is a whole bunch of activities,” said Denis Delemont, program coordinator at the Collicutt.

“We have treat bags for the first 1,000 two to 12-year-olds. We have activities for all ages from preschoolers to pre-teens. The soccer pitches will have inflatables of all shapes and sizes for every age group, and in the field house we will have some climbing and different games and activities.”

All areas of the Collicutt event, including the pool, skating rink, and gymnastics areas, will be open for $5 per person. Families of five can enter for $20. The pool, skating rink, and gymnastics centres are all open from 5-8 p.m., and the general event lasts from 5 -9 p.m. Kids can come alone, or families are welcome to come together.

“This event is for everyone from little ones to grandparents. We’re trying to make it more fun than scary. There are other places kids can go to ‘get their scare on’ but we want to provide a more family-oriented atmosphere,” said Delemont.
