It’s time for Fernwood to get spooky once again. Every year we host hundreds of kiddos and adults alike and this year is no different! Come to Stevenson Park and the Fernwood Community Centre gymnasium to enjoy Halloween with your neighbours.

The bonfire will be burning beginning at sunset in Stevenson Park. Come with your costumes, instruments, chairs, candy and be ready to feel the community vibes. We’ll be tossin’ wood on the fire until we’re not allowed anymore (10pm).

In the gym, we’ve got activities for kids and families! We’re bringing back every child’s favourite, the Bouncy Castle! Let them jump out their candy high for the evening while you fill up on our delicious homemade hot apple cider. We’re also ­setting up a Theremin in the gymnasium for all to play. So we will see how that goes! Don’t miss out on our Costume Contest at 7:00pm.

Lastly, during sunset, we will be ­visited by a local witch who will lead us in a ­spiral dance. A spiral dance is a pagan ritual designed to emphasize community and rebirth. Alongside percussion, we will hold hands and follow each other in a spiral, changing directions and coming face to face with every other dancer throughout.

We hope to see you out for an eventful evening!
