Spooktacular Victoria this Halloween

Victoria is sometimes recognized as one of Canada’s most haunted cities!

And although you can definitely seek out the “spooky” in Victoria you can also just enjoy the fun and whimsical part of the Halloween season. Here is my top list of Haunted Happenings in Victoria, BC 2016.

Witness a Swarm of bats in Trounce Alley and become transformed into a BAT when you find one of the 6 benches through downtown Victoria, be sure to capture it on your camera!  Don’t miss other little surprises like the Bat Center (at the Fort Street entrance), and of course you can’t miss a creepy late night walk through the notorious “Market Scare”.
