Halloween Monster Tales

Halloween Monster Tales

Event opens at 4:00pm on Friday, October 22.

This year Celebration Square welcomes monsters of all ages to join in the Halloween fun. Starting October 22 through to October 31, Celebration Square will bring three popular Halloween inspired stories to life. Dress up in your monster tails to explore some of our favourite monster tales:

  • Monsters 101 by Cale Atkinson
  • The Barnabus Project by the Fan Brothers
  • Bob's Hungry Ghost by Genevieve Cote

Visitors will be transported into each imaginative story through larger-than-life illustrated story walks and immersive photo ops. While onsite, be sure to check out the onscreen story-times hosted by Children's Programmers from Mississauga Library, and participate in one of three scavenger hunts at the Square.

Visit on October 31 when authors will share their stories and answer questions from little monsters on the big screens.
