Get Your Ghost On!


Kudos to the staff at Town Hall, early out of the starting gate with their Ghost Town theming!

In the spirit of Halloween and Ghost Town, the Town is having a decorating contest! Decorate your property in the
most spook-tacular fashion and register it by emailing for your chance to win $150 and a certificate of recognition.  

The Arts Council was decking out tonight, and several businesses are already decorated. The Gardens will be getting their makeover in the next couple days. Meanwhile, things are being created…

Eyeball fun! Watch for them in the Gardens.


Believe it or not, these ingredients turned into a creepy creature that will be dwelling in the Ghostly Gardens during Ghost Town.


Spider legs. Big giant spider legs. For a big giant spider.

Winners will be announced October 30, 2017. There will be two categories: one for the
best residential property and one for the best business property.

So let’s creep it real this Halloween. Register your Ghostly Work by emailing for your chance to win.


Dampish weather, but improving! C’mon out!



Saturday – October 22

Thankfully, the Annapolis Royal weather today has not been nearly as bad as forecast, so it should be a very comfortable night for this evening’s GHOST TOWN events.

Sure, it may be a little dampish, but really… if you are “daring” to come out for GHOST TOWN, why on earth should you be scared of a little rain? Right?

So bring a raincoat just in case, and join us this evening for some more GHOST TOWN fun. Ghostly Gardens, Escape Rooms and a Graveyard Tour await you.

Wowsers! Acres & Acres of Ghostly Gardens!


Volunteers have been going CRAZY this week, and the Gardens look amazing. Be sure to take in the Ghostly Gardens AFTER DARK events starting tonight October 21, and also Sat Oct 22 and again Fri/Sat Oct 28/29. For a full schedule of events, click here.


GHOST TOWN Spokeskeletons Humerus & Patella have worked their fingers to the very bone helping to get ready.

Join us!

Rain? Who cares?

Rain? Who cares? GHOST TOWN events are just CREEPIER in the rain, so don your boots, grab and umbrella, and join us!
Humerus & Patella, our spokeskeletons, were very very excited yesterday to see some of their favourite old friends return to the Gardens. Lots of bats, witches, ghosts… and the Big Giant Heads. And new scary creatures they hadn’t seen before!
Ghostly Gardens starts tonight, running 6:30-9:00pm and it is only one of the great events that await you.  The Sinclair Inn Escape Rooms are secured and ready for those who want to try to puzzle their way to freedom, and the Candlelight Graveyard Tour will complete your evening quite nicely.
For both the Gardens and the Graveyard Tours, you can buy your tickets when you arrive, on any of the FOUR BIG NIGHTS in Annapolis Royal.
The Escape Room is normally by advance booking, however they have indicated that tonight (Oct 21) they have some openings and will be able to accept last minute groups – so drop by and see them this evening as well. (Humerus & Patella snuck into the Excape Rooms last evening and found them very challenging: they puzzed, and they puzzed til their puzzlers were sore… )

A Graveyard? By Candlelight?


Did you ever wonder how to find your long lost relatives when you are a skeleton? Not an easy task! Humerus & Patella are sometimes lonely, and really look forward to frolicking with others like them during GHOST TOWN.


So needless to say, Humerus & Patella were really excited when they heard about the Candlelight Graveyard Tours being offered in Annapolis Royal. They have many skeleton relatives who reside in graveyards, and were hoping to meet some… so they decided to tag along with Alan Melanson a week or so ago.

They had a GRAND time. They said they got so caught up in Alan’s wonderful storytelling that they forgot to be even a little bit scared. Of course, we must remember, skeletons normally feel quite at home in such places…


Sponsored by the Historical Association of Annapolis Royal, the Candlelight Graveyard Tour is DON’T-MISS activity, during GHOST TOWN or at any time in the summer. Alan guides you through Nova Scotia’s oldest English graveyard, telling stories about some of its more notable residents. The Candlelight Graveyard Tour has received many well-deserved awards and accolades, and makes the perfect finish to your GHOST TOWN evening!

Fridays & Saturdays, October 21, 22, 28 & 29, 9:30 pm (Rain or Shine)
ADULT $9, YOUTH (13-18) $5, CHILD (12 & Under) $3
NO RESERVATIONS. Duration: 1:15

(Show your Ghostly Gardens Ticket/Receipt to receive a discount.)


Oh, by the way, Humerus & Patella DID end up re-connecting with a long-lost Uncle and two cousins they hadn’t seen in years. They were up ALL night catching up on family news, and are still pretty tired. Silly old skeletons…
