Elora Monster Month
Friday, October 1 - Sunday, October 31
dozens of activities scheduled during the month-long celebration, a self-guided tour leads visitors through Elora’s historic downtown and showcases a hauntingly beautiful collection of illuminated sculptures created by artist Tim Murton called The Twilight Zoo — ghosts, skeletons and other ghoulish creatures – that have decorated the village’s streets each October for nearly 20 years. Volunteers gave many of the monsters makeovers over the past few weeks to get them ready for visitors.
On weekends throughout October most of Elora’s main streets downtown are closed to vehicular traffic, making it easy for pedestrians to walk through the village and get up close and personal with the resident monsters. A digital map marking the tour route – including a QR code version – is available at monstermonth.ca.
