TOtimes Excursions: Here’s a taste of what’s happening in the Niagara area this fall


Niagara Falls, ON, Oct. 5, 2022 – As autumn leaves begin to change, Niagara Parks offers an exciting lineup of all-ages events across the 56-kilometre Niagara River corridor throughout the month of October. Our friends at Niagara Parks have cooked up a lot of ghostly blooming good fun things to do if you are headed out Niagara way this October into November. From their annual Chrysanthemum Display at the Floral Showhouse, to an owl and bat exhibit at the Butterly Conservatory, and Hallow’s eve haunted ghost tours of the eerie barracks of Old Fort Erie.

Annual Chrysanthemum Display at the Floral Showhouse

Thursdays – Mondays, October 8 to November 13, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse will once again transform into a gardener’s paradise, as cascading Chrysanthemums in vibrant fall colours adorn every corner of its showrooms. Considered by many to be one of Niagara Parks’ most spectacular seasonal displays, the beloved “Mum Show” also holds the title of Niagara Parks’ longest-running exhibit, with its first showing dating back to November 1946.

Thursdays – Saturdays, October 20 – 29, tours begin at 7:30 p.m.

Get into the spirit of Halloween and join a haunted ghost tour of the eerie barracks of Canada’s bloodiest battlefield, at Old Fort Erie. Costumed guides will lead guests by torch and candlelight, through the gates, past the cold stone walls and into the dark corners to learn about the fascinating history of some of our most beloved Halloween traditions. The evening will conclude with the customary burning of a Guy Fawkes effigy.

Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather, as tours will run rain or shine. Pre-registration is required; please reserve your space at niagaraparks.com/ghosttour.
