  • Creepy Candy creatures Tapley's Farm is where Whistler's kids go to celebrate Halloween.

Whistler's Tapley's Farm neighbourhood is celebrating its 33rd year as the resort's haunted hub for Halloween night.

Around 800 children are expected for trick or treating from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., with the neighbourhood being closed to traffic from 5 p.m.

It will be followed by fireworks at Myrtle Philip Community School's lower playing fields.

A "Park and Spook" shuttle will run from Marketplace. Everyone attending is asked to donate non-perishable items to the "We Scare Hunger" food bank campaign.

Elsewhere, Haunted Heritage Weekend is offered by Arts Whistler and the Whistler Museum.

On Oct. 29 and 30, Halloween Crafts is on at the Whistler Museum from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. The museum is creating creepy crafts for kid. Admission by donation.

On Oct. 30, local storytellers share their spookiest stories at the Spooker Series, also at Whistler Museum, at 6 p.m. Tickets for the 19-plus event are $10.

And Whistler's Haunted House returns in a new location from Oct. 27 to 31. The Westin Resort & Spa Whistler hosts the family fun (early) and full-scare sessions. Tickets are $5 for Family Fun and $10 for Full Scare, with partial proceeds going to local charities.

The Whistler Haunted House is a frighteningly fantastic fundraiser that has spooked the souls of local Whistlerites since 2012. Details on the Whistler Haunted House Facebook page.

In Pemberton, there will be a Creepy CarnEvil on Saturday, Oct. 29, with no boogeymen from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. and full scare from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The garage haunt takes place on the corner of Lupin and Laurel Streets. Admission by donation.
