Downtown Orangeville is celebrating autumn with a special family fun day on Saturday, October 19. The annual Harvest Celebration marks the closing of Orangeville’s outdoor Farmers’ Market and brings trick-or-treating to downtown Orangeville.
Super heroes, princesses, ghosts, zombies and other spooky characters are all invited to take part. Trick-or-treating for children 10 and under begins at 10 a.m. and will run rain or shine until 12 p.m. or until the candy runs out. The event includes free face painting, petting zoo, pony rides, and contests.
Vote for your favourite farmers’ market vendor Halloween costume, choose your pick for best scarecrow, and favourite jack-o-lantern. Proceed with caution to the Haunted Dojo at 10 Second Street and the Haunted Happy Place at 172 Broadway and be ready to get spooked. Extend the fun for a chance to win a kid’s Halloween prize pack by naming the witches waiting for you on the downtown Witches’ Walk.
Sit down for a great cup of coffee and a snack at one of downtown’s cafes or indulge in a delicious meal at one of the downtown restaurants. Make a night of it and grab tickets to Theatre Orangeville’s production of Come Down From Up River by Norm Foster playing at the Opera House October 17 to November 3.
