The Festiv'Halloween takes place in the facilities of La Belle de Coteau-du-Lac and you can even choose what level of thrills you want to experience. It's an activity that's accessible to everyone, even if you're not into creepy experiences.
If you aren't a fan of all things scary, you can go from 2 to 5 p.m. every Saturday of the month as well as on Sunday, October 10. Admission is $8 per adult and gives you access to the decorated maze, just without the scary animations.
You can also take part of your day to pick pumpkins, squash and corn to make your own popcorn.
But, if you do like getting spooked, you should go between 5-9:45 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays starting October 15, as well as on Halloween Sunday, to try out the dark maze with some absolutely spooky entertainment.
You can walk through "The Cursed Domain," a haunted trail made up of fifteen different themed tables that stretch over 250 meters, both inside and outside.
For these two nightly activities, the cost is $10 for October 15 and 16, and $13 for the following two weekends. You can reserve your spot now!
Lighting up the streets of Old Longueuil with the theme "New Wave," the festival will showcase light installations and digital visual spectacles.
These sensory experiences will be set against the area's historic buildings thanks to a team of local artists, including La Boîte interactive, HUB Studio, and Society of Technological Arts.
You can dance the night away or tap your toes as you walk around, listening to '80s and '90s-style synth beats from an impressive lineup of DJs and VJs.
Of course, you can't have a Montreal festival without delicious bites. The festival will offer a different menu each night to go correspond with the evening's party. Don't be surprised if you see some familiar names. For instance, William J. Walter will be serving up his famous sausages for the Deutsch Party on September 30.
The next night, students from École Hôtelière de la Montérégie will give a nod to Montreal's iconic smoked meat.
La Buvette will help celebrate the last night of the festival on October 2 with fish and chips.
With snacks that'll make your tastebuds sing, a partnership with Brasseurs du Monde for beer and drinks and a stacked festival lineup, Lumifest has the recipe for a good time — and it's a great way to usher in the fall season.
