Drive by some of Barrie’s most epic lawn displays
Trick-or-treat 2020 might not happen, but that hasn’t stopped enthusiasts from spooking up their front yards with Halloween props.
5 Spence Avenue in Midhurst, 212 Foster Drive and 288 Browning Trail have all gone above and beyond the call for creep this year. Be sure to keep social distancing when checking them out but even a quick tour can heighten the Halloween horror!
Despite having to close their way cool big tent experience, the Alley will be re-opening (with social distancing in place) for Halloweekend. It’s reservation only though so be sure to book in ASAP. The doors open Thursday night and run right to Saturday evening.
Take a Drive
There are a couple of eerie live haunts within driving distance, including a great lights show in Vaughan. It’s a pay per car basis, so load up the famjam and crank up the speakers! Spooky tunes and eerie sightings make for a fun family night trip.
Bring your bubble and celebrate Halloween by sinking a few putts. Glow in the Dark Mini Putt will be open Saturday for a family friendly event, with treats at a few holes.
If you really want to up your fun/fear factor, consider booking in an Escape Room this weekend. Nothing says Halloween like trying to escape a locked room on the eeriest weekend of the year! MindBuster Escape Rooms is offering escapes through the weekend, although spots must be reserved in advance. (Just don’t watch any of the SAW movies before arriving)
