Four weeks out from Halloween is not too soon to make plans, especially for caregivers of children.

Hamilton Conservation Authority announced today (Oct. 3) that has opened booking for a first-time Halloween Pumpkin Party that will be held at Westfield Heritage Village on the Oct. 29-30 weekend. The event takes place from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. each day. Reservations, which includes parking, are in two-hour time slots.

“This event promises fun for all ages, and young and old are encouraged to come dressed in their favourite costumes,” HCA says. “Enjoy traditional pumpkin and Halloween-themed games, activities, crafts, and scavenger hunt. The barn will be filled with glowing carved pumpkins and you can journey on a Scarecrow Walk. Visitors may also explore our newly groomed trails on a hike, and enjoy the unique natural features.”

The event itself is free for HCA Membership Pass holders, who have to pay a $10 reservation fee. For non-members, there is the reservation fee, a $10.50 vehicle fee and a per-person fee of $5, but children under the age 6 get in free. Any group coming in two or more vehicles will need to make a reservation for each vehicle.

The conservation authority adds that the Copetown Lions food truck will be on site, Westfield’s gift shop will be open, and a pop-up store called The Pumpkin Parlour will be selling some Halloween-related items

Conservation and heritage areas that are in the purview of HCA began taking reservations in 2020 to manage visitor numbers and assist with physical distancing during the early, pre-vaccine stages of COVID-19 pandemic.
