Spooky Night in Toronto

A Halloween Story

“I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.”

Toronto’s most wicked street party takes place every year on Halloween night, October 31st. Hundreds of Halloween-dressed revelers converge at the Village (Church & Wellesley): scary zombies, clowns, trumps, witches, skeletons and other bloody creatures being treated by sexy nurses – plus a mixture of funny penguins, high tech robots, big head babies and even a pair of huge dinosaurs.

Let the parade begin! Images and Halloween related poetry from one unforgettable and spooky night from Toronto, Canada.

“On Halloween, witches come true; wild ghosts escape from dreams. Each monster dances in the park.” – Nicholas Gordon

Scary bride and groom
“Get up, get up
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’all’s neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse’s shell”
Michael Jackson – Thriller


“Shadows mutter, mist replies; darkness purrs as midnight sighs.” – Rusty Fischer
