Spooky season is here! You’re never too old for costumes, haunted houses, and candy, which is why we have planned some wicked programs for adults looking to celebrate Halloween this month.

Get in the Halloween spirit with DIY Halloween Shirts! On Wednesday, October 16 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at the Old Post Office, learn how to use our Cricut Maker to create your own custom shirt. Please bring your own shirt. A $3.00 - $5.00 material cost will apply at this activity.

Looking for witches, goblins, potions, and magic? Join us for Going Back to Hogwarts: A Harry Potter Book Club for Adults on Monday, October 21 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at Queen’s Square. Whether you’ve read the books once, a hundred times, or are picking one up for the first time, we’re diving into this world of magic to discuss all things Potter and you’re welcome to come along.

The doors of the Creative Studios are locking behind you! Can you solve the clues to free yourself from the haunted Old Post Office? This Halloween-themed escape room takes place on Tuesday, October 22 from 4:00 – 8:00 pm at Old Post Office. Each time slot has 15 spots – register by yourself or with a group.

For those looking for an immersive experience, look no further than Hespeler’s Murder Mystery Night. On Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, step into Edgar Allen Poe’s mansion from 6:00 – 9:00 pm to solve the murder at Poe’s Raven Party. Participants will be provided with character details ahead of the event, costumes are welcome, and props will be provided to help you get into character. Please register for only one of the two evenings, one registered spot per person.

Bring your costume or DIY Halloween shirt to our Halloween Photobooth! On Saturday, October 26 from 10:00am – 5:00 pm, join us for some spooky fun taking photos with our green screen at the Old Post Office.

On the night before Halloween, join us for Ghost Hunts of the Old Post Office. Led by Ghost Walks and featuring a ghost hunt style made popular with years of testing, explore the Old Post Office and see if you can find any spirits in the shadows. Participants will have time to wander and use of investigative tools. $10.00 + HST, registration is required.

Happy haunting!
