After a two-year hiatus, an annual Halloween event is back in Wood Buffalo National Park. Formerly called the Haunted Cabin, this year’s Pumpkin Party will be held in the park on Saturday, October 22, 2022, with many of the same great family-friendly activities that make this event a local favourite.
Visitors can expect an afternoon full of games, contests and activities. The event will run from 2-5 p.m. at the Salt River Day-Use Area along Pine Lake Road, just 20 minutes from the town of Fort Smith.
To participate in the costume contest, visitors are encouraged to dress in their best costume. Additionally, there will be tools to carve pumpkins, so visitors should plan to bring a pumpkin and their creativity along.
By encouraging Canadians to visit national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas, and providing them with the information and means to enjoy them, Parks Canada enables more Canadians to learn about our shared heritage and experience the outdoors.
