The streetscape features themes including the Feeling Ghoully Music Zone, Ghostly Giving and Moonlight Harvest Market featuring entertainment, non-profit organizations and inflatables, and vendors respectively on Sunday, Oct. 27 from noon to 5 p.m.

There’s a ‘wicked kids zone’ that includes the starting point of a 3 p.m. monster march down Government Street. That zone features balloons, colouring, face painting, games, and blow ups with a central open area and bouncy castles. Glow sticks, wristbands and pumpkins are available by donation with profits supporting Jeneece Place and the Children’s Health Foundation.
