Ready to get into the spirit of the season? Here are five things to this month in and around Ottawa to help you find everything from pumpkins, corn mazes, and ghost stories.
Abbey Hill Farms
Located at Prince of Wales and Bankfield, this is your stop for fall produce. Squash, apples, and of course, pumpkins, as well as a variety of decorations to bring fall to your home.
Celebrating its 100th year, Ouiment Farms in Vankleek Hill is a fun day for the entire family. Get lost in a massive corn maze, learn about farming, zipline down a hill, ride pedal karts, slide down giant tubes, take a wagon ride – and so much more.
Head to Upper Canada Village to experience the joy of Halloween. A walk-through exhibit of 7,000 hand carved and lighted pumpkins is sure to bring joy to kids and parents alike.
Maple Hill Urban Farm
Situated in the picturesque greenbelt, this farm spans 167 acres. Raising chickens, turkeys, goats, cows and ducks, you are welcome to come and tour the farm where you can learn about milking and take a tractor ride.
For those of us who crave a bit of spooking, The Haunted Walk offers walks through the old Carleton County Jail, The Chateau Laurier, Mackenzie King Estate, Upper Canada Village and many other places filled with ghost stories sure to get your goosebumps rising.
