FORT ERIE – Experience the traditions of Halloween, 1812-style, brought to life through the ghosts of Canada’s bloodiest battlefield.

Staff at The Niagara Parks Commission’s Old Fort Erie are busily preparing the final details for these All Hallow’s Eve tours, which will take place Oct. 19, 25 and 26, beginning at 7:30 p.m. each evening.

A fun and frightening evening is promised for visitors to the old stone fort, ending with refreshments and the annual burning of a Guy Fawkes effigy.

The site of the bloodiest battlefield in the history of Canada conjures up many of its own hair-raising tales. See the Old Fort from the perspective of the spirits who still make their presence felt.

Tours start at 7:30 p.m., followed by the burning of the Guy Fawkes effigy at 8:30 p.m. This event is suitable for all ages. Be prepared and dress for any kind of weather. Reservations are required; to book your tour please call 905-871-0540.
