There are plenty of reasons why Victoria has been deemed the most haunted place in the Pacific Northwest. With over 5,000 years of First Nations’ history and well through the days of Fort Victoria in the 1800s, there have been many mysterious events creating a culture of ghost tales here. When there aren’t paranormal activities to experience there are unique events that will make your Halloween spirit squirm. Let’s take a look at what kind of ghoulish fun visitors can get into. Having a city full of ghost tales is one thing, but how do you make sure you don’t miss out on any of it? John Adams and his team of professional guides provide famous ghost tours that explore the narrow alleys, historic courtyards and other creepy places of Victoria. Listen to the echoes of hangings, murders and colourful events past that can still be heard and tour where ghosts may make their presence known at any time of the day or night. Bastion Square, Old Town, Chinatown, St. Ann's Academy and the historic waterfront have more hauntings than any other parts of the city.  Don't miss this opportunity to brush shoulders with ghosts and take in rich, Victoria history this Halloween. If you’re looking for a night out with a Halloween injection don’t miss Victoria’s nightlife scene over the last week of October. Upstairs Cabaret will be hosting the Haunted Ball on Friday, October 26 and Slaughter House on Saturday, October 27. Expect a transformed nightclub draped with every scary prop possible, as well as music delivered by resident DJ Speedyshoes that will fill the room with his hip-hop and top 40 dance tracks. Come Halloween night, join Club 9ONE9 at the Strathcona Hotel for Halloween Massive with special performance by The Killabits. At the forefront of engineering the newest sounds of underground electronic music, this group of music pioneers will keep your night full of fun and dance. One of the highly anticipated activities that take place this month includes Craigdarroch Castle’s Dracula – The Blood is the Life experiential play. As fog consumes the grounds of Craigdarroch Castle, Dracula takes residence and wreaks havoc on those who dare to step foot on his newly claimed castle. This is a theatrical adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic horror novel and is experienced not on stage, rather throughout Craigdarroch Castle and the grounds which surround it. This new adaptation mixes the iconic Dracula story with a dose of demonic exorcism, led by the famous vampire hunter, Professor Abraham Van Helsing. You may think you’ve seen the story of Count Dracula, but you’ve never seen it like this. Victoria doesn’t waste time to getting in the Halloween spirit. Before the first week of October had passed, thousands of the living dead had already taken over the capital of British Columbia and made the zombie apocalypse hearsay all too real – this was Zombie Walk 2012. Since then and throughout the scariest month of the year, much has been going on and it won’t end until November comes knocking. Whether you’re coming with your family, partner or even if you dare, on your own–there are Halloween activities and attractions for all. Come to Victoria to experience what the month of October is all about, getting your socks scared off! For a full list of events, click here.
