Nuit Blanche - http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca
Oct. 2, 6:57pm - sunrise
Toronto’s annual sunset to sunrise celebration of all things creative with this free event. The city gets an artistic makeover of art installations, performance pieces and visually stimulating awesomeness that can be found in art galleries, museums, in alleyways and parks and random cafes or bars. All. Night. Long.
Art Battle 8 - http://www.artbattleto.com
A must see painting showdown extravaganza where anyone can become an artist by entering their name into a hat for the battle draw. Once names have been selected there are 3 “matches” where people paint their asses off on canvas. After the 4 rounds one is named champion and the painting with the least votes gets destroyed by a chainsaw! (the artists of said “losing” painting gets to do the honours and it’s all in good fun).
Halloween Haunt - http://haunt.canadaswonderland.com
Oct. 1-31, 7:00pm-midnight (Fri/Sat/Sun)
I adore Halloween. period. Yes I am aware I am no longer a child… but I grew up where Halloween didn’t exist so when I moved to Toronto I went all out and still do. Don’t even get me started on haunted houses.
I also adore rollercoaster rides, and with those two powers combined you get Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland. You get to ride rollercoasters at night (with much shorter lineups), get chased around by zombies, goblins and ghouls and, if you’re brave enough, venture into some of the creepy park areas that have been transformed into haunted mazes.
*tip: don’t go on the opening or closing weekend… too busy
Toronto Zombie Walk - http://www.torontozombiewalk.ca
Oct. 23, 3:00pm-6:00pm (approx.)
This will be the 8th annual T.O. Zombie Walk! Last year nearly 6000 corpses writhed, weaved and lurched their way through the streets of Toronto feasting on the brains of those unlucky enough to be living. This year it starts at Trinity Bellwoods Park and ends at Christie Pitts Park. Come out as a zombie and mingle with the macabre or just to take pics of the undead. Tonnes of fun. Trust.
