5 Things To Do This Halloween in Jasper National Park

Do

IF YOU HAVEN’T PREPARED YOUR HALLOWEEN COSTUME YET, IT’S TIME TO DUST OFF YOUR SEWING MACHINE, REV UP THAT GLUE GUN AND GET CREATIVE!

🎃

What’s not to love about bags full of sugary candy, endless party options, cheesy CD compilations and pumpkins galore!? Admittedly, one of the best parts about Halloween is dressing up in something ridiculous, but once you’ve got your costume figured out, what’s next?

Here are 5 things to do this Halloween in Jasper to make it the most memorable one yet:

1. DRESS TO IMPRESS AT ONE OF JASPER’S COSTUME CONTESTS

What’s Halloween without a good ol’ fashioned costume contest? Come and strut your stuff at the Astoria Hotel’s D’ed Dog Bar and Grill, the Athabasca Hotel or the Jasper Legion and win some epic prizes!

2. EXPLORE HAUNTED JASPER

Grab your headlamp and go on a late night stroll around town. Maybe you’ll discover creepy ghosts lurking around the dark corners at night! Jasper has its fair share of haunted spaces, including: The Astoria Hotel, Tekarra Lodge , Robson House and the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge Point Cabin.

Keep in mind, with Jasper’s designation as a dark sky preserve, it gets especially dark at night making it that much more exciting!

3. START A ZOMBIE WALK

Itching for a fright night? If you love scaring other people…this is the perfect way to do it. Gather some of your buddies, dress up in zombie garb and start a zombie apocalypse right in the Jasper town site! If you need to cure your ravenous zombie hunger after roaming the town, head down to the Jasper Brewing Company. Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, Evil Dave’s Grill or Coco’s Cafe!

4. DO THE MONSTER MASH

Dance off all that Halloween energy and head down to the Jasper Legion on October 28th and boogie to the live music of the Athabasca Barnburners and the Whyte Ave Womp Rats.

5. LISTEN TO SOME SPOOKY STORIES

Want to learn more about Jasper National Park's history with the supernatural? Head down to the Jasper Visitor Information Centre and ask the guides if they have any haunting tales of restless spirits, ancient burial grounds and unexplained paranormal occurrences in the park.

If you feel like going outside of town, go for an overnight camping trip at one of Jasper’s campgrounds, and tell some spooky stories around the fire!


WE WITCH YOU ALL A HAPPY HALLOWEEN IN JASPER NATIONAL PARK!
