Top Halloween events in Calgary this 2016:

TELUS Spark 


Flashlight Nights

The Calgary Corn Maze is fun and challenging at any time, but just think of trying to navigate the paths at night using only your flashlight! Flashlight nights are an extremely popular activity as guests love getting lost in the dark. Bring your flashlights and your sense of direction...you’ll need both.

Flashlight Nights draw a predominently older audience (youth groups and adults). We still have lots of young families that attend and just love it, but please keep in mind it is a much different experience than visiting in the day as the maze does get quite dark and there is an older audience on average.

Friday, Sept 23 & 30, and Oct. 7, 14, & 21, 2016.
