#RIDEAUHALLoween : In a galaxy far from here

October 26, 2018

OTTAWA – Citizens of planet Earth have always wondered what happens beyond our galaxy and keep questioning the idea of extraterrestrial life. This enigma will be resolved this year as aliens invade the grounds of Rideau Hall. Are they friendly? What do they want from us? Do we share anything in common? It is up to you to find out!

Many new and exciting activities await visitors! Be amazed by our Halloween-themed miniature village, invaded by creatures from outer space. Learn about space exploration by participating in educational demonstrations led by the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Take photos in our decorated photo booth and with the many extraterrestrial characters roaming the site and our spooky path.

Rideau Hall staff will be on hand to distribute goodies to trick-or-treaters of all ages.

When: Wednesday, October 31, 2018, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: Entrance Gate on Thomas Street (inside and outside the Visitor Centre)
Parking: Street parking is available in the neighbourhood
