October in Edmonton is usually characterized by the leaves changing colour, giving us great scenic routes to view as we move around the city. It really is an amazing time to view some of the outdoor sites the city has to offer and having healthy, clear vision only enhances that experience. It’s also the month where the city seems to be bustling with family friendly events in the spirit of Halloween. We thought we would compile a list of some of the must SEE spooky spectacles happening in and around the City of Edmonton for you and your family to enjoy before October ends.
