Ghost Walk

Happy Fall Ya'll! What better time than October to get out in that crisp air and explore downtown in a different way... a Ghost Walk! Grab your winter hats, your thermals and meet me downtown for a spooky night of historic Halifax storying telling. It's not very often you get to be a tourist in your own city, now YELP is giving you the excuse!

Let's meet at Starbucks on the corner of Spring Garden/Queen at 8pm and grab some hot chocolate or pumpkin spice lattes. I'll have some cool YELP travel mugs to keep our beverages hot and we'll make our way to the clock tower. If you're not interested in the Star B's feel free to meet us at the clock Tower.

The tour starts at 8:30pm, the event has 14 RSVP spots so get in on this quick! Let me know if you're bringing a plus one! (They count towards the 14 spots).

Hi there. These are some great events, but few toddler-friendly ones. Is there anything going on for the five-and-under crowd?
