Celebrate Halloween at one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals


​Dress up in your favourite costume and take a trek down the haunted trails at Sheppard’s Bush

Join thousands of Halloween revellers for a unique experience at one of Ontario’s top 100 Festivals on Saturday, October 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Sheppard’s Bush. 

Wander the haunted wooded trails of Aurora wearing your favourite costume and enjoy the spooky scenery created by more than 300 volunteers over 1,500 hours.

One trail is family-friendly while the other is for those looking for a good scare. Bring your own flashlight to help navigate your surroundings outdoors.

Before touring the trails, start your adventure at the Aurora Family Leisure Complex (AFLC) for fun indoor crafts and activities. 

A complimentary shuttle bus will be travelling between the AFLC and Sheppard’s Bush. Interested in hearing some scary stories? Board Casper’s School Bus if you dare. There will also be a bonfire and charity barbecue for participants.

Wristbands for this event must be purchased in advance. The cost per wristband is $5 and non-refundable. 

Wristbands are on sale at the following locations: Aurora Family Leisure Complex, Aurora Town Hall or the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex during regular business hours.

Donations of gently-used children’s clothing will be gratefully accepted at the Sheppard’s Bush entrance and at the AFLC the night of the event.

Special thanks to our event sponsors: Rent Source and Watson’s Family Karate School.
