IT’S HALLOWEEN!

All around the Outaouais, people are gearing up for Halloween. At Coulonge Falls Park, on October 26 you can decorate a pumpkin and visit a haunted house. In Cantley, there will be Halloween storytelling at the Espace culturel and a haunted trail at Rose-des-Vents School. At the Promenades Gatineau there will be family entertainment … and we’re told there’s even a witch lurking somewhere in the shopping centre! At the Casino du Lac-Leamy, the Zone becomes the Fright Zone, with scary characters and a spooky ambiance. Finally, have you ever had the terrifying experience of being trapped in an underground bunker with zombies? That’s what awaits you at the Diefenbunker!

New Route

There is a new tourist route in the Pontiac and the Ottawa Valley! Discover local wineries, breweries and distilleries thanks to Tap & Cork.
