Jack O’ Lantern Days Haunts Fish Creek

After hosting a virtual event last year, Visit Fish Creek is bringing back in-person activities for the annual Jack O’ Lantern Days Oct. 29-30. This festival, which puts the “Eek!” in Fish Creek, will entertain witches and goblins of all ages. Highlights include a costume contest, town hall games, townwide trick-or-treating, costume parade, mask making and more.

Event organizers are also introducing the inaugural Fish Creek Haunted Trail – an 1/8-mile walk winding through the trails and bridges of Fish Creek Park – on Oct. 30, 6-9 pm. All ages are welcome for a suggested donation of $5 per person or $10 per family. All proceeds from the Haunted Trail and concessions will support the Gibraltar Booster Club.
