Trick or Treat on the Avenue
Trick or Treat
Each Halloween, Oak Bay Village hosts a giant community Trick or Treat! Oak Bay Avenue merchants and the Oak Bay Municipal Hall offer treats in stores from Foul Bay Road to Monterey Avenue. A complete list of participating merchants, identified by the pumpkin poster in their window, is posted a week before Halloween on the Oak Business Improvement Association website.
Trick or Treat is held between 2 and 5 pm Halloween, October 31st. The road closure of Oak Bay Avenue between Wilmot Place and Monterey Avenue will start at 1:00 pm and conclude at 6:00 pm.
Bonfire at Fireman's Park
Following Trick or Treat, the Municipality of Oak Bay hosts a giant bonfire in Fireman’s Park, adjacent to the Oak Bay Police Department and Firehall. Enjoy hot dogs, hot chocolate, a Halloween costume contest, and a chance to spray fire hoses!
Come and see the hundreds of carved pumpkins on display behind the Municipal Hall. They feature the likes of local personalities, cartoon characters, the royal family, celebrities, and more. Admission is by donation and the proceeds benefit Oak Bay Kiwanis.
Pumpkin Art is open from 5 pm to 9 pm each day the week leading up to the 31st, and from 5pm to 10 pm on Halloween. More information is available on the Oak Bay Business Improvement Association website.
