This Small Ontario Town Is Being Invaded By Glowing Monsters & Zombies This Month

You can step into a real-life Halloween Town at this small Ontario village this season.

Monster Month has returned to Elora for the month of October, and it celebrates everything Halloween. You can explore streets filled with glowing ghouls, indulge in frightening food, snap some selfies with zombies, and more.

A self-guided tour will lead you through The Twilight Zoo — a series of glowing monster sculptures by artist Tim Murton that have been illuminating the town each fall for nearly 20 years. A map is available on the website so you can find all the resident creatures.

Other activities include a Spooktacular Market, Ghost Walks, and a Zombie Walk ending in a flash mob.

Some of the local restaurants have cooked up some creepy offerings, such as a burger with haunting olive eyes.

If you're feeling brave, take a trip to this creature-filled town to celebrate the spookiest season.
