Just in time for Halloween, haunted heritage tours return to Mississauga this month.

The 21st annual Haunted Mississauga heritage tour is back in-person, says Heritage Mississauga who hosts the event. The tours, like many events, were forced to go online due to the pandemic.

This year, the guided walk weaves through Streetsville Memorial Cemetery (299 Queen St. S.) on Saturday, Oct. 22.  Costumed actors appear throughout the cemetery, portraying people and events of the past. The evening tour theme is an 1832 election.

The cemetery is a local landmark with a spooky history dating back to the early 1800s. Before the Presbyterian Church was built next to the cemetery, interments were held in a forest, according to the City of Mississauga.

Timothy Street, whom Streetsville is named after, sought to end the practice of burials in the forest and sold land to the church in 1824. The land became the cemetery putting an end to the forest burials.

The Haunted Mississauga heritage tours are capped at 20 people. Each tour is 45 minutes and there are seven times to choose from — 7 p.m., 7:20 p.m., 7:40 p.m., 8 p.m., 8:20 p.m., 8:40 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children under 12.
