Haunted Halloween tours will take place at the Orillia Museum of Art and History (OMAH) and the Orillia Opera House and will continue throughout downtown Orillia.

While on the OMAH tour, Nightmare on Peter Street, guests will be transformed by a ghoulsome make-up artist in time for the end-of-night costume party and be led into the darkness, where they will endure the creepy Chainsaw Hospital haunted house ending the tour in the clock tower.

Tours will also consist of participating downtown businesses offering interactive and spooky haunting features and Halloween-themed food and drinks. Look for the Jack-o’-lanterns in merchant windows and pop in for a trick or treat.
