Did you know that Victoria is reportedly one of the most haunted cities in Canada? It’s a perfect place to have some frightening fun this Halloween!

Halloween is this weekend, and if you’re looking for some frightening fun, here some ideas:

Go on a ghost tour

You can book a guided tour to see haunted locations like:

Or book a walking ghost tour through Discover the Past in Victoria, British Columbia, which offers different tours through the city.

If you’d prefer to hitch a ride, you can hear some hair-raising ghost stories from the comfort of a pedicab! Explore hidden alleyways and Chinatown while learning of the area’s colourful (and spooky!) history.

Go pumpkin picking

Galey Farms is a long-time Halloween tradition in Victoria for its pumpkin patch. But, not only can you pick out your perfect pumpkin, there is also a corn maze, a haunted house and hayrides!

Watch a horror flick

Local theatre Cinecenta is playing classic Hitchcock fright films Pyscho and The Birds this weekend!

Take part in a Halloween costume contest

Mayfair Mall is having a Monster Ball on October 31 from 12-4 pm! The costume contest has more than $1,000 in prizes to be won. Pre-registration is required.

Evade escalating home prices

We’ve all seen the (scary!) high prices homes in the Greater Victoria area are selling for these days. That’s why TLA Developments is committed to building attainable housing, like our Skyeview condo development in View Royal. Learn more at Skyeview.ca.
