Rideau Hall-oween

From Beyond the Grave

This year, many people celebrated the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Unfortunately, the party was so loud it woke the dead!

On Halloween night, the grounds of Rideau Hall will be transformed into a haunted Victorian cemetery. You are invited to follow a path through the grounds where you might encounter the ghost of a governor general, a zombie chef, or a headless coachman. One thing is certain: the dead will not be forgotten.

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

New this year: Come take a photo with a humongous 770 kilogram pumpkin!
