The Costume Contest

Dress as whatever you want!  We love original homemade costumes.
How do you get a prize?  Be creative, original… shocking!

Welcome the Judges!  Our biggest problem was understanding people’s costumes.  Not just visual, today they are multi-layered, complex and torn from the headlines.

For this reason we’ve created the Judges Table!  Think of The Voice but for costumes, and an opportunity to really show-off your creativity.

Unfortunately not. We would love to have everyone at the party. But booze is served, and when booze is served the LCBO owns us all

We got you covered. There will be 2 (cash only) bars to cut down lineups and quickly unite you with your booze

Full night is about 5 hours ~ Doors open at 7:30pm, followed by entertainment, the video dance party and special options.  Main prizes handed out at midnight, and night ends at 1am.

Far be it from us to stifle your creativity. If you’re not sure, feel free to Contact Us and ask.

Yes you can! However it means less chance at a wonderful prize. But we won’t turn you away or treat you any differently from the other, slightly more creative, Halloween-ers

Just once a year! One chance every year to take part in this unique event

Yes! We’ll provide free and monitored coat check facilities

Of course. Photography and video are welcome and encouraged

We play the best retro and Halloween party favs on the planet with some modern mixed in

Means we play the videos of many, many amazing hits no matter how spooky, sexy or cheesy

  1. Veggie Platters
  2. Fruit Trays
  3. Cheese and Crackers
  4. Homemade Pizza (with vegan options)
  5. Sandwiches
  6. Wraps (with vegan options)

I'm a paranormal enthusiast since founding Haunted Hamilton back in 1999. Started with Hamilton's Bellevue Mansion (2000) and been hooked ever since. Left HH in 2012 to focus on my passion, the Ghost Walks. I love telling the stories of witnesses, and from the past, with the goal of proving ghosts are real.
