October is Monster Month in Elora

Monsters and scary creatures of all shapes and sizes are decorating the downtown streets  here.

Even more, there is a freaky range of scary events and festivities coming to town.

Tim Murton’s Twilight Zoo opened Oct. 8. Kids of all ages will love his Halloween show. It features amazing wire and paper sculptures by day. At night, his creatures take on an eerie glow as they light up the river bank.

View Elora’s Loch Ness monster on the Grand River, and spot some new friends who have joined Nessie in the water this year.

At 6pm on Oct. 24 everyone is invited to join in the first annual Elora Monster Month parade – a non-motorized Mon­ster Month Parade. Register  with the Elora BIA to join the parade by  emailing elorabia@wight­man.­ca.

Organizers ask that people bring a non-perishable dona­tion for the local foodbank.

After the parade, enter the Haunted Desert Rose.

On Halloween night at 11pm the Elora Gorge Cinema presents the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
