From October 25th to November 25th visit the Spooky Pumpkin Patch at the Station Street Common Park (85 Station Street). Aside from enjoying all of the festive decor, there are a handful of other fun activities to take part in for the duration of the event!
Virtual Costume Contest
In the past, the DDBIA has hosted an in-person event where we are able to judge costumes face-to-face. In light of the ongoing pandemic, we have had to reimagine the ways that we do things. With that in mind, we have opted to host our Halloween costume contest virtually! Contestants will be judged in categories based on age 0-3 years, 4-6, 7-12, and 13+. Read on below for instructions to participate.
1. Take a photo: Take a photo of yourself or someone else in their costume. Extra points if your photo is taken in the Station Street Common
(85 Station ST)
2. Write a description: Write a brief description of your costume. What is it? why did you choose to dress up in this way?
3. Submit your photo: There are two ways to enter. Either post your photo
on social media and be sure to tag us!
Facebook: @downtownduncan Instagram: @downtown.duncan
or you can email us your photo and description to
Take your photo in the haunted pumpkin carriage driven by a mysterious - yet oddly fashionable headless horse-person!
be sure to tag us in your social media posts, we love to see people enjoying Downtown Duncan.
try your hand at some old fashion estimation and see if you can guess the combined weight of all the real pumpkins in the patch!
Next, move on to our jar of Jelly Beans and see if you can wager a guess to the number of beans inside our reliquary of sugary goodness!
The jar will be in the Station street common park from October 25th to November 5th. Submit your guess via email to DDBIA@downtownduncan.ca or by placing a ballot directly in the box in the park.
