RIVERSIDE 2016: Halloween Fest
Join us for spooky FREE fun at Riverside Halloween!
We all love dressing up! Whether as our alter-ego, superhero, or just as a mere form of expression. Kids of all ages are invited to get into costume and join in for some fun and spooky happenings in Riverside this Halloween. It's Riverside's FREE Halloween Fest on October 29, 2016, presented by Nell & Natasha’s Real Estate Homeward, the Jimmie Simpson Rec Centre, the Riverside BIA, and Team Sheppard Re/MAX:
START YOUR DAY at 10AM with Haunted House and Pumpkin Carving in Jimmie Simpson Rec Centre (10AM-2PM).
JOIN THE FUN outdoors starting at 12PM (to 3PM) across the street at Nell & Natasha's (807A Queen E) for more pumpkin carving, face painting, costume contest and more! (11AM-3PM). Donations are welcome in support of the Rivertowne Breakfast Program, which provides hot breakfast and social connections every Friday for local residents and families.
From 2PM to 3PM enjoy the spooky sounds of Vocalwork Children's Choir! (807A Queen E)
AT 3PM, take part in the Riverside BIA's Kiddie Costume Parade, leaving from 807A Queen Street East (3PM-4PM): guided by the Riverside BIA, kids and parents will meet & greet and get fun treats from more than 20 local Riverside businesses! (Note: tickets help us get an idea of numbers but are not mandatory to take part!)
IF YOU DARE, stay on for Riverside's Ghost Walk from 5PM-6PM, starting from 807A Queen St East, your guide will share local Riverside ghost stories dating back to the 1800s – some quirky, and others not for the faint of heart! (Note: tickets help us get an idea of numbers but are not mandatory to take part!)
The guided walking tours are part of Riverside Walks, a series of free local walking tours throughout the spring, summer and fall (May-October). Our tours invite people from all across the city, GTA and beyond, to come and explore the vibrant Riverside neighbourhood, located in Toronto along Queen Street East between the DVP and Empire Avenue. Our 2016 guided walks, sponsored by Team Sheppard Re/MAX, showcase Riverside’s diverse culture and cater to a wide variety of interests. All walks are led by local residents and Riverside personalities. Check out more Riverside Walks at www.riverside-to.com
So get on your walking shoes and join us in exploring your Riverside!
