Downtown Brantford got a whole lot spookier with the arrival of its annual Halloween celebration.
On October 5 and 6, Harmony Square acted as the central location for the city’s annual Halloween celebrations: Scare in the Square. The weekend held an abundance of attractions for local residents to enjoy.
The city has held this event every year for the past ten years – with this making it the eleventh – and could not be run without the support of its sponsors and volunteers.
Tammy Bryce, a volunteer with the city of Brantford, said she spent the entirety of her day handing out Halloween bags to the children that came through Harmony Square with their parents.
“We actually provided the free fair attractions as well as sponsoring the entire event,” said Sophia Dasilva, a representative of Brant Taxi.
Over the two days, residents could partake in various activities located throughout the downtown core, like costume contests, escape rooms and a haunted house – located in Laurier Brantford’s student union building.
