All Hallows’ Eve is more than just candy

Stop by Fernwood’s annual Halloween Bonfire at Stevenson Park this October 31st! Come down in your best costume or just come to warm up with friends and neighbours by the fire, tended with love by Fernwood NRG staff. We’re so excited to host you in our backyard! Bring a chair, blanket, instrument, some stories, a bag for trick or treating or just come to enjoy this Fernwood tradition.

The fire will be burning from dusk til’ 10pm. Make sure to bring the kids because this event is for everyone, seriously, we’ve got every child’s favourite activity ­happening in the Fernwood Community Centre: a Bouncy Castle! Let ‘em jump out their candy high from 6-9pm in the gym. ­Fernwood NRG Youth Groups will be there too, serving hot apple cider, giving out treats, and manning the photo booth!

If you get there early, just before it gets too dark, take part in a Spiral Dance before we light the fire. A group dance designed to emphasize community and rebirth, led by Fernwood’s favourite witch, Beth Threlfall.

Fernwoodians love to get behind ­Halloween and the bonfire has been ­heating up the neighbourhood’s ­ghoulish ways for over 10 years! Don’t miss this event that brings together all the ­wonderful people who call this place home.
