Fright this way – Black Harvest returns

You can create your own spine- chilling Halloween craft to take home or watch as balloons are twisted into ghosts
The windows of Crave - a downtown chocolatier - are decorated for the season with some spooky chocolate skulls. As Halloween approaches, more downtown businesses will be decorated in time for the Black Harvest event on Oct. 27. Erika Engel/CollingwoodToday

The tradition of Halloween and the Black Harvest Festival continues in historically Chilling Downtown Collingwood this October, with Witches (and Warlocks) of the ‘Wood taking over the town. Mark Saturday, Oct. 27 on your calendar and prepare to come downtown to see what is brewing.

As the toe of newt and the eye of frog are added to the cauldron of Halloween festivities, the downtown streets will be decked out in all things frightening . . . from Pumpkins and creatures of the night, to the feature attraction, Witches and Warlocks. 

The spirit of the season has also taken over many of the businesses; check out all the windows to see who has been put under the spell of the spirits.

Starting at 11 a.m. activities will begin along Hurontario Street to put even the most skeptic of creature into the haunted mood; awaiting is a cauldron of activities.  You can also create your own spine- chilling Halloween craft to take home or watch as balloons are twisted into ghosts. 

As the town hall clock strikes 1 p.m. all good little Witches and Warlocks and their friends will gather at the town hall for a costume contest for various age categories, Judged by the Head Witch and Warlock!

Of course, our downtown merchants invite all the costumed good little girls and boys children to come for some early trick or treating . . . just look for the Orange ‘Witch’ signs on the door or window to find out who has treats inside!

This family orientated Halloween day is a Collingwood tradition, join us, or else . . .
