Ghostly Gardens 2019

0

Things are about to get spooky at the Historic Gardens. Once again, our resident ghouls and goblins are taking over and transforming the Gardens into Ghostly Gardens. On the nights of October 24 25 and 26 and the afternoon of October 27 the Gardens are unleashing their scary side mixed with a good dose of family fun.

Every year we have some new twists and surprises but, favourites like the Witch’s Lair, Musician’s Graveyard and Elm Street Café will be ready to scare visitors for another year. During the After Dark evenings, you can grab a lantern and make your way to the Ghostly Interpretive Centre where Young Company Productions have a live performance featuring local performers. This is sure to be a fun performance.

New this year is a Sunday matinee designed to appeal to some of the younger members of the family. The matinee will have the regular ghouls who roam the Gardens by night but, daylight offers a less scary visiting opportunity for some children who are uncomfortable with darkness.

Ghostly Gardens after dark takes place October 24, 25, 26 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. The Ghostly Gardens Sunday matinee is 2pm-5pm on October 27.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.exploreghosttown.com or at the door (441 St George Street, Annapolis Royal). For more information visit www.exploreghosttown.com, email admin@historicgardens.com or call 902-532-7018.

Ghostly Gardens is a great time for the whole family. Be sure to visit… if you dare.
