This October we're taking a walk on the spookier side of things in the Halifax Commons area. We're going to be guided by expert historian and author, Blair Beed, who will show us the area around and including the Halifax Commons. Mr. Beed, a former contender for Halifax Town Crier, will take us in the footsteps of those who came before us, and tell us about the impacts these spirits have had, and still have today, on our city.
As with most of our events, attendance on this walk is free, however Mr. Beed is a professional historical guide and the Halifax Diverse program is making it free for this night only. We would appreciate your support, as you are able, to help fund this and other offerings provided by Halifax Diverse.
We will meet outside the Global building on Gottingen St (2110 Gottingen St.) before 6:30PM, with the tour departing at approximately 6:30 pm on Oct 29th. Come early because space is limited, and this should be a very popular walk! Get in the Halloween spirit and come in costume for brownie points and a fun time!
Check the facebook event page for more information, and see you in the spooky commons!
