Weekend Wrap-Up Oct. 28-30


  1. If you have not yet made it (or even if you already have) to the Pumpkin Food and Folklore Festival on the Dartmouth Waterfront, bring the whole family down for free Pumpkin Decorating from 10-12 and some Folk Story telling by the talented and entertaining Willy Badger. This Saturday is your last chance!
  2. Got juggling balls but nowhere to go? Go to the Dartmouth Circus Club Saturday from 1-3 for their open practice session and problem solved! If you don’t have your own circus toys, they’ll lend you some and they’ll also be providing some funky beats. All this for only $5! The event is ideal for families, teens, adults, or performers looking for practice space. But kids, please bring your parents, and no tight rope walking today, this session is for ground arts only!
  3. Being Halloween weekend, you know there are going to be some good parties and it will be hard to make a decision … why not send your age 6-12ers over to the Halifax North Library to get the party started. Costumes are welcome at the Haunted Halloween Party at 2285 Gottingen St, at 3:30 for games, prizes, thrills, and even some scares … maybe a treat or two! Like all library events—and there are Halloween-themed events at libraries all over HRM—it’s free!
  4. Please make it to Fall River to the 6th annual Family Friendly Adamson Haunted House. The more people that arrive, the less power the creepy Halloween ghouls have over us! So for the love of humanity, on Friday or Saturday night, go to the house on 183 Richardson Drive between 6:30 and 8:30 and show them you are not scared!!
  5. For the braver—and perhaps older—kids, take them to the Haunted Hollow of Hammonds Plains. It’s a hike through the woods and it costs $12 per person. It’s open on Friday and Saturday night, they start selling tickets at 6:30, and pro tip: Fridays are your better bet for a shorter line! Go to 1561 Hammonds Plains Road to get seriously freaked out.
