Halloween comes alive this year at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Wear your coolest costume, bring your own trick-or-treat bags, and check out the spooky wonders of the animal kingdom.

Edmonton: Deadmonton Haunted House

Don’t miss this year’s Deadmonton Haunted House. Located at the Old Paramount Theatre, this haunted house is rated 12+ and beware. If you’re taking your child, make sure they’re up for it as the website for the event notes that there will be no refunds for kids who get too scared!

Halloween isn’t only about trick or treating, boo barns and costume parties.
