Urban Halloween at Wychwood Barns

Halloween

Boo! at the Barns 2014 is taking place on Saturday October 25 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In my experience, when an annual event survives the 3-year milestone, it's proof that it's becoming a family tradition. Boo! at the Barns is in its 5th year at Wychwood Barns. I've not attended it yet but I will visit it this Saturday. They say it's their largest event of the year. Admission is free but there will be charges for some activities. (Note from October 29: At the end of this page, I've just posted a photo gallery of the event (which I attended with a little pirate and his mom, also a pirate, it runs in the family).

By the way, while you're there, you might want to do a little stroll along one of the few private streets in Toronto. It is truly lovely and part of the Wychwood Country Stroll (walk #21) in my walking guide Toronto Urban Strolls 2.

Note that Wychwood Barns Park also does a Pumpkin Parade on November 1st at dusk, an event where locals bring their carved pumpkin lit with a candle, to line paths and for everyone to enjoy.

Halloween idea that goes "Poof!"

DIY crafts | Halloween

Just fell for this fun idea!

Fill an empty egg with flour and draw some spooky eyes on it. When you toss it on the pavement, it will make a ghost-like "smoke" effect! By the way, here's a scary though for adults, if it rains when kids play with the eggs: flour + water = glue!

Clever Halloween craft for big kids

Best use ever for pipe cleaners!

You take four pipe cleaners together, fold them in two, twist the middle and then add beads to make the joints. Almost makes me like spiders! (Added to my collection of fun Halloween ideas on Pinterest.)

No need to get dirty, cutting and gutting one's pumpkin when we can so easily reproduce this clever decoration with branches and pumpkins. (One of the suggestions I collected on my Pinterest board DIY fun: H for Halloween.)
