We’re in for a pretty spooky weekend Toronto.
With Halloween fast approaching, there are tons of ghoulish and witchy activities to take part in all weekend long. Featuring a Stranger Things party, Screemers Toronto, a Halloween party at the ROM, and more, you’re in for a busy weekend packed with frights.
Check out five things to do this weekend in Toronto below.
Starcourt 80s Halloween Spooktacular
Gladstone Hotel | October 25th, 9:00 PM – 2:00 AM | Tickets
Toronto Stranger Things fans can get immersed in the show this Halloween, as the Gladstone Hotel is turning into the Starcourt Mall for a party this month. The hotel is set to completely transform into the mall for the 80s bash, and will even be offering up Glamour Shots, Tacos Ahoy, Jazzercise, DJs, pop-up performances, and more! In the spirit of Halloween, costumes are encouraged at this 19+ party!
Screemers Toronto 2019
Better Dead Centre | Several evenings throughout the month of October | Tickets
Screemers is one of Toronto’s first and best haunted attractions, and has been the city’s only Haunted Scream Park for 27 years. This event takes over an entire parking lot, turning the concrete patch into a horror movie. If you’re looking for a good spook, head to Screemers most weekend nights to be scared stiff.
Catch a Concert
Indie88 proudly welcomes Jónsi & Alex Somers on Friday, October 25th 2019 at Queen Elizabeth Theatre! The Sigur Rós band members recently released a surprise album titled Lost and Found. “Lost and Found is a sibling album to Riceboy Sleeps,” Somers explains in a statement. “It falls somewhere between what was, what is, and what will be. Tape experiments, modular synth processing, and acoustic soundscapes drift in and out of focus. Sound friends that you may have heard or seen before appear; familiar, but different.”
Indie88 proudly welcomes Taking Back Sunday on their 20th Anniversary Tour on Saturday, October 26th & Sunday, October 27th at Danforth Music Hall! For tour stops where the band are performing over two nights, each nightly set will offer a double-album play – using a specially designed coin, Taking Back Sunday will flip to play either their Where You Want To Be or Louder Now, in addition to Tell All Your Friends.
Friday Night Live: Wicked
Royal Ontario Museum | October 25th, 7:00 PM – 11:30 PM | Tickets
The Royal Ontario Museum will be hosting their own Halloween party at their weekly Friday Night Live event. The theme will be “Wicked,” so come in your Halloween best and take part in the weird and wacky. This year, the ROM’s featured exhibition is It’s Alive! Classic Horror and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection.
CATL’s 5th Annual Halloween Spooktacular!
The Dakota Tavern | October 26th, 10:30 PM – 1:00 AM | Tickets
