'A really fun thing to do': OMAH's Spooky Stroll returns Oct. 26

Guided walking tour is 'all about downtown Orillia’s eerie past'

On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the Orillia Museum of Art and History (OMAH) is hosting a one-night-only spook-tacular event that you won’t want to miss.

For the second year in a row, OMAH is hosting Spooky Stroll, a guided walking tour that’s all about downtown Orillia’s eerie past. Join one of our guides as they share stories of spooks and spectres, and things that go bump in the night.

The tour will kick off at the museum (located at 30 Peter St. S.) in OMAH’s own haunted jail cells and will incorporate stops at the Orillia Public Library, the Orillia Opera House and more.

One of our visitors who joined Spooky Stroll last year with her family said, “We had a great time. It was a really fun thing to do in the lead-up to Halloween (our favourite holiday).”

Last year’s event was fully sold out, so don’t hesitate to get your tickets. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for kids (17 and under). There are three times to choose from: 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. The tour is just over an hour in length.

This year the tour includes some brand new stories, and surprise appearances by a local spectre or two, courtesy of Mariposa Arts Theatre.
