Hallowe’en in Cumberland

October 2017

This Hallowe’en season, Cumberland gets spookiffied, with fun, unique experiences for all ages.

Over the Halloween season, the Cumberland Museum & Archives features its annual Spooky, Haunted Coal Mine. Descend down the steep dark stairs into halls and passageways of terror and trickery! Get ready for ancient apparitions, spirits, spiders, bats, rats, ghostly forces and other spooky surprises! The Spooky, Haunted Coal Mine is not recommended for children under 5 and parents or guardians are requested to accompany children under 10. This Cumberland tradition is by donation, with proceeds supporting the museum.

The most daring guests can turn back the wheels of time on a haunted adventure at the Cumberland Museum and Archives. After being greeted by a most gruesome host, descend into the coal mine for a theatrical journey, meeting ghostly interpretive characters who share ghastly stories from Cumberland’s past. Older Youth and Adults only!  Drop by for your 20 minute adventure – Time and Date TBD…

On Hallowe’en Eve, October 31st, join hundreds of ghosts, fairies, pirates, and superheroes at the annual Trick or Treat Parade in Downtown Cumberland. Trick or Treaters gather outside the Cumberland Recreation Centre (CRI) at 4:00 before parading down Dunsmuir, stopping at businesses for candy and other surprises. After filling your buckets and bags, head back to the Cumberland Recreation Centre for hotdogs, juice, and Halloween crafts, and to visit the ‘Spooky Haunted Coal Mine’ at the museum, open until 7:00pm! The Trick or Treat Parade is sponsored by the Village of Cumberland, the Cumberland Museum and Archives, Businesses of Cumberland, and the Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial.
