Whether you want to attend the spookiest Halloween activities or prefer more sweet than spooky, here are the top 5 Halloween activities and events happening this year in Surrey.
Potters House of Horrors
Potters Nursery | October 4 – November 2
12530 72 Avenue
Potters Nursery undergoes a Halloween transformation from a beautiful blooming garden centre to a frightening fusion of haunted houses and scream-inducing activities. 2019’s haunt includes two truly terrifying haunted houses: Devils Descent and the Death Valley Motor Inn. And back this year is the Escape from Incineration where you have 20 minutes to escape a “burning” building by solving puzzles and searching for clues. For the more timid visitors who want spooky but not super scary, you can opt for Family Hour and tour the houses with brighter lights and no animatronics/actors, or check out Li’l Haunters, Potters family-friendly option.
Museum of Surrey | October 26
17710 56a Avenue
The littles will love this safe, free, indoor Halloween celebration at the Museum of Surrey. Go on a Spooktacular scavenger hunt and trick or treat all around the museum, and check out the magic show from magician Lon Mandrake at 1:30, 2:15 and 3pm. And special guests Batman and Wonderwoman will be on hand for photo opps, so come in costume!
Bear Creek Haunted Forest Scream Train
13750 – 88th Avenue at King George Blvd
October 11 – 31, 2019
The Bear Creek forest comes alive after dark with ghosts and ghouls intent on scaring. Favourite characters like Chainsaw Charlie are back and you might also run into the walking dead who roam the platform! The Scream Train is recommended for older children who can handle being scared. The more timid passengers will love the Pumpkin Patch train as it travels through the decorated forest to the pumpkin patch!
Historic Stewart Farm, 13723 Crescent Road
October 26, 2019
If you’re looking for a sweet, and a little spooky, outing for the whole family, head to Historic Stewart Farm. Enjoy old-time All Hallow’s Eve traditions. Have your fortune told, do a spooky scavenger hunt, try your hand at pumpkin bowling, make a ghost craft, or stick your hand in a creepy discovery jar. And then settle in for a classic silent scary movie from the early 1900s. Bring the kids in costume and skip the scare factor this year!
October 25 & 26
Would you rather dance the night away? For the 19+ crowd, the Joseph Richard Group of restaurants has a series of Halloween parties complete with decorations, costumes and bass-thumping beats featuring everything from hip hop to EDM remixes to spooky Halloween hits. Parties are happening at Taphouse Guildford, Townhall Public House South Surrey, the Henry Public House, and Edith & Arthur Public House. Please arrive early, party responsibly & plan for a safe ride home.
