Autumn Falling

0626b9291bfe41c8cdc3228de77be35eIt’s already snowed and we haven’t even reached November. Is it winter already? Even though I grew up here I’m still surprised by how fast we transition from a toasty summer day to a dark rainy afternoon. There’s not much time before the snow blankets the city. There are a few more events in October to attend before the city enters a hibernatory winter.


With all the stress accumulating in the atmosphere, I can’t recommend enough using Halloween as an excuse to let out some steam (and screams).

First up is La Ronde. It’s just a fun place is general, but for the next two weekends La Ronde is hosting Fright Fest. Terror mazes and spooky rides, this is La Ronde’s finale before they close until next Spring.

Pumpkin Picking at a farm is 10 parts less fright factor and 10 parts more seasonal fun. I went to Quinn’s farm at l’Ile Perrot several weeks ago, and it was literally a breeze of nature. Even though the pumpkins were not ready at that time, looking at the pumpkin patches and apple orchards just puts my mind in a serene state.

Did you know there is a Garden of lights down at the Botanical Garden? I came across the advertisements for this in the metro station. It’s a wonderful place to fill the lungs with oxygen, and once the lights turn on after dark, feast the eyes on the lumiotherapy.

To celebrate Halloween without ever leaving campus, Four Floors @SSMU is a must. Visit McGill’s very own Halloween haunted experience. There’s nothing like bonding over cool/silly costumes and getting scared together.
