Halloween Town Comes to Carleton Place –Day 11 Toils Troubles and Gaga


Every day we will put up some Halloween tidbits until Hallow’s Eve.


Saturday October 24, 2015 RAIN OR SHINE

Witches, zombies, ghosts and vampires are all invited to attend the spook-tacular 9th Annual Maskeraid Halloween Parade by the Carleton Place BIA.

The 9th Annual Maskeraid Parade in Carleton Place is going to be a spook-tacular night downtown. Dozens of captivatingly spooky floats and costumed participants will be marching down Bridge Street on Saturday, October 24, 2015. Beginning at 7pm, the parade will kick off at Heritage Mall on Lansdowne Avenue and travel down Bridge Street, ending at Mill Street by the Town Hall. The Maskeraid Parade is in support of the Lanark County Food Bank, making it an extra special night. Registration forms are now available for anyone who would like to take part in this spellbinding fall event!

Members of the BIA, businesses, residents and community groups of Carleton Place and the surrounding area can help make this fall event a ground-breaking success by submitting a well-decorated harvest or Halloween themed float. Everyone is asked to “parade for aid” in this event, which is exclusive to Carleton Place, and bring non-perishable food items to support the Lanark County Food Bank.

Make this Halloween extra exciting by building the scariest and most imaginative float together with your neighbourhood. Schools, sports teams, community and social groups are also encouraged to showcase their creative side with an elaborate float or by creating a Food Bank challenge between other groups.

Everyone is welcome downtown to watch the ghosts and goblins float down Bridge Street into the dark abyss. Spectators are encouraged to dress up in a costume, get into the spirit, and celebrate Halloween. If you want to see a parade that is both haunting and enchanting, come celebrate the BIA Maskeraid Parade on October 24th in Carleton Place.

In addition, there will be a Haunted Alley put on by Surrounding Memories and The Floral Boutique on Bridge Street. From 6-8pm, you can come have some free hot chocolate and take pictures in the haunted alley, if you dare.

Banana Ghosts and Tangerine Pumpkins.- This is my favorite Healthy Halloween Fun Food Idea.  So easy to make and so much fun to eat.  Serve this fruit tray at any halloween party. You can use celery stalks or pretzel sticks for the tangerines.  For the banana ghosts, use mini chocolate chips for the eyes and regular chocolate chips for the mouths
