Pumpkins After Dark

This family-friendly drive-thru takes a different approach to Halloween festivities. Instead of focusing on spooky thrills, this one-of-a-kind attraction features over 150 gorgeous gourds that have been masterfully sculpted into giant mosaic designs. As you traverse the 1.55-mile loop, you can tune in to a local radio station to enjoy some haunting tunes. The event runs until Nov. 1, on select days after dark. Tickets are exclusively available online, so buy them before you head over to Country Heritage Park, in Milton.

Fright Nights at the Indian River Reptile Zoo

Take a trip back in time with Fright Nights at the Indian River Reptile Zoo. This Jurassic-Park-like Halloween drive-thru offers plenty to see and do. The event itself features lifelike animatronic dinosaurs, including Scotty — a replica of the largest T. rex ever found in Canada. The park also serves as a sanctuary for real reptiles, from snakes and tortoises to crocodiles and monitor lizards. However, this exhibit is closed due to the pandemic. But don’t let that spoil your fun — the zoo offers walking trails and an on-site mini-golf course to help your little ones work off their Halloween sugar rush. The drive-thru event runs until Oct. 31.

Nights of Lights

You may not associate Halloween with twinkling lights, but the Nights of Lights drive-thru just might change all of that. This stunning attraction features over 700,000 brilliant LED lights, which blink to the tune of your favorite Halloween songs. The 1.4-mile loop takes about 30 minutes to tour. It features drive-thru tunnels, spooky apparitions, and plenty of unforgettable sights for guests of all ages. You can buy tickets online, then head to Vaughan to enjoy the festivities. The event runs until Nov. 1.
