Here's everything happening in the city to celebrate the spooky holiday
We’re well into the spooky season and whether you’re looking to get scared or you’re simply looking to stock up on tiny versions of your favourite candy, there’s a seemingly endless list of things to do around Greater Victoria for Halloween. From haunted houses and witch gatherings to live performances of Frankenstein and not one, but two Rocky Horror Picture Show viewings, you’ll have your pick of things to do for the rest of October.
As the sun goes down, the scare factor turns up at Galey’s—enjoy just Fearfest or add tickets to Carnevil, the PG-13 haunted house (don’t worry, there are three “chicken exits” if you can’t handle the fright). Daily from 6pm-9pm, ending Oct 29.
