Mark your calendars for a multimedia event unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
From Oct. 22 to 31, the City of Burnaby presents Eerie Illusions at Burnaby Village Museum, which will astound visitors with its state-of-the-art lighting, soundscapes and special effects.
The fun begins when two children discover a book of magic spells and try to find the perfect one to show and tell for their classmates. Things don’t go as planned, and Burnaby Village becomes overrun with talking scarecrows, invisible bands, and photo-bombing ghouls.
“It’s a story about magic and imagination, a family-friendly Halloween experience that celebrates the season’s spirit and is suitable for all ages,” says Marketing Coordinator Jared Bowles.
On-site food trucks will also provide refreshments for families as they make their way through the experience.
Burnaby has a long history of holding large community events throughout the year, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the City hasn’t held a big in-person event since Heritage Christmas, 2019.
“It’s really exciting to be able to bring an event of this scale to residents,” Bowles says. “Eerie Illusions takes place outdoors, making it a safe experience for everyone attending. We hope it helps bring a bit of normalcy back in our lives and to our community.”
Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Participants can book a date and time slot online. Visitors will book an entry time, with the last admission time set for 10 pm.
“There will be lots of Instagrammable moments to share with friends and family as people navigate through the site. You don’t want to miss out on that.”
