There are lots of fun things happening this weekend, including Spirit Walks, movies, haunted houses and a kitchen party. You can check out our full listing here or take part in some of the free events happening this weekend.
If you are looking for some inspiration for your pumpkin carving, head to Stone Road Mall for the UNICEF pumpkin contest. Students and celebrities from Guelph will display their carved/painted pumpkins using this year’s themes, The Muppets and Cats. You can donate to indicate your favourite pumpkin and raise funds for UNICEF’s programs to help students in other countries go to school. This event runs Friday and Saturday.
From 9:30 – 10:30AM all ages are welcome. If you are a bit braver you can go from 10:30 – 11:30AM but enter at your own risk. Please bring a non-perishable food item for the Guelph Food Bank. Presented by the GPL’s Teen Advisory Group.
We love this event.

The day will be filled with fun activities and science experiments for children of all ages. Some of the activities include:
fossil fishing, gold panning, walk inside a giant cell, create a laser maze, hands on chemistry experiments, a Chemistry Magic Show and much more, including the Gem and Mineral Show.
