Halloween is almost here, and that means a whole new slate of events popping up in Toronto. From a spooky tour of a famous Toronto landmark to a family-friendly light show in the GTA, check out three of the best ways to celebrate Halloween 2021 in Toronto.

Spooktacular Light Show

Are you ready for a truly immersive Halloween experience? Look no further than the Spooktacular Light Show. On now at the Meadowvale GO station in Mississauga and the Mount Joy GO station in Markham, the Spooktacular Light Show is a Halloween-themed event put on by the same people as last year’s holiday Journey of Enchantment. This family-friendly show will have you driving through an illuminated pumpkin tunnel, marvelling at a range of animated displays and over 1.5 million lights. The route is 2 kilometres in total and visitors are required to stay in their own vehicles, making this a COVID-safe event for the whole family. Plus, proceeds of the event are being donated to three local charities: Sick Kids Foundation, Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer, and Toronto Animal Services.

Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland

Canada’s Wonderland has always been a popular spot come Halloween and we can see why. Their annual Halloween Haunt event is back for 2021, and we couldn’t be more excited. Not for the faint of heart, Halloween Haunt is a truly terrifying experience, featuring live monster encounters, mazes, and worst (or best?) of all, immersive scare zones. The entire park is split up into zones, including CarnEvil, Forest of Fear, Gates of Terror, Streets of the Undead, and The Farmstead (the latter two of which are new). Tickets can be purchased in advance on the Canada’s Wonderland website, with prices starting at $31.99. 

Fort York After Hours: Lantern Tours

Enjoy a spooky night out while learning about the history of one of Toronto’s greatest landmarks  at Fort York After Hours: Lantern Tours. This Halloween event will teach you all about the eerie history of Fort York over the course of a 90-minute outdoor walking tour. During the tour, your guide will tell you chilling tales of a haunted lighthouse, the bloody Battle of York, and a few ghost stories as you explore a nearby military cemetery. Fort York After Hours: Lantern Yours are not recommended for children under 8 years old. Tickets can be purchased online, with lantern tours taking place at 7:00 pm, 7:30 pm, and 8:00 pm on October 28th, 29th, and 30th. 


If you’re going to be in Toronto this Halloween, then we recommend attending the festive events above. And if you need a place to stay during your visit, we’d love to have you at the Super 5 Inn Toronto.
