Frighteningly Fun Halloween Events Part I

It’s that time of year again, the time for costumes, treats, and of course, spooky family events in the City of Toronto. During my personal favourite time of the year, there are tons of things to see and do with your family in our community. Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and while you’re at it, check out some of the wonderful attractions in your own backyard.
