Honestly, this is legit my favourite time of year. The weather gets cooler (finally!), the leaves start changing colour (yass), the whole city looks highkey gorgeous... and it's finally time for Halloween.
Is Halloween one of the most fun times of the year? Quite possibly. There are Halloween specials (It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown should absolutely go down in cinematic history as one of the all-time best holiday films, ever, hands down); there's candy; there's mystery; there's beautiful colours and pumpkins and scary stuff... it's awesome, basically.
And what better way to celebrate one of the spookiest times of the year than going to a spooky AF village?
Actually, scratch that. This is no run-of-the-mill spooky AF village. This is a whole, entire village, transformed into a scary, haunting experience.
Village Québécois d’Antan (1425 Rue Montplaisir, Drummondville, QC), situated in Drummondville, Quebec, is about 1 hour away from Montreal by car.
Ever year, for Halloween, the village transforms into a haunted paradise. There are all kinds of fun activities depending on when you go, including a zombie tag session, a maze, a cemetery, haunted houses, and many other spooky, fun AF activities.
This year, the village is being spookified from September 30 - November 5. Tickets are $20 per adult.
