The Enterprise-Bulletin (Collingwood) - - OPINION -

COLLING­WOOD — The tra­di­tion of Hal­loween and the Black Har­vest Fes­ti­val con­tin­ues in Down­town Colling­wood this Oc­to­ber, with witches ( and war­locks) tak­ing over the town on Oct. 28. As the toe of newt and the eye of frog are added to the caul­dron of Hal­loween fes­tiv­i­ties, the down­town streets will be decked out in all things fright­en­ing ... from pump­kins and crea­tures of the night to the fea­ture at­trac­tion, witches and war­locks. The spirit of the sea­son has also taken over many of the busi­nesses; check out all the win­dows to see who has been put un­der the spell of the spir­its. Start­ing at 11 a. m. ac­tiv­i­ties will be­gin along Hurontario Street to put even the most skep­ti­cal of crea­tures into the haunted mood; await­ing is a caul­dron of ac­tiv­i­ties. Face painters will be as­sist­ing those who would like to be dis­guised. You can also cre­ate your own Hal­loween pump­kin to take home. Along Hurontario Street, other ter­ri­fy­ing ac­tiv­i­ties will be tak­ing place through­out the day. You can even take a tour of the Haunted School Bus. As the town hall clock strikes 3 p. m. a cos­tume con­test will take place at the town hall for for var­i­ous age cat­e­gories, judged by the head witch and war­lock. This fam­ily- ori­ented Hal­loween day is a Colling­wood tra­di­tion. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call 445- 5595 or visit colling­wood­down­town. com.
