Scarefest

Saturday Fun and Distraction

on July 2, 2011 - 12:02pm


Looking for something to do today? Alright. I've got two suggestions on how to spend your Saturday.

First, for any locals in the Greater Toronto Area, you can attend The 7th Annual Scarefest hosted by Boneyard Bargains. It takes place at 115 Philip Ave in Scarborough. BBQ, props, a few vendors, and lots of local haunters. Officially kicks off at 1 pm (which means I need to finish getting dressed).

For the rest of you, I can offer a distraction for at least an hour. If you didn't get enough of me via my ten minute interview on this month's Hauntcast, you can now listen to the entire uncut interview on their "Treats" page. And if you don't doze off at the beginning, some of you might find my stories about being a first time vendor, and starting out as an artist, interesting.

Thanks to Shellhawk again for taking the time to chat with me.

Enjoy your holiday weekend, everybody!

Happy Canada (Pumpkin) Day

Sculpey pumpkins work in progress

Happy Canada Day! Can't think of a better way to celebrate than to make some pumpkin sculptures. It's my first time sculpting large ones, and I'm really enjoying it. These guys are about the size of an orange (approximately 3" tall). I'm still working on them, but already their personalities are shining through.

These three will be coming with me to Scarefest on Saturday. I hope to see some of you locals there!

Every year I miss Scarefest, a friendly, casual haunter event hosted by Boneyard Bargains. And every year I vow to attend the next one.

Scarefest is a gathering of people who share an interest in all things related to Halloween. In attendance will be people that own and operate professional Haunted Attractions, Home Haunters as well as Halloween product vendors. The event is free and open to anyone 16 years of age or older. Bring along your photos and stories to share with those who have the same passion as you. Food and beverages will be provided as well as a prize giveaway.

This year I'm keeping that vow. In fact, I will be one of the vendors.

So if you live in or around the GTA, come on out and meet fellow members of the Ontario Haunters Club.

Please send an email to Boneyard Bargains to RSVP by June 19th or call 416-266-7354.

It runs from 1pm-7pm on Saturday, July 3. Takes place in Kim and Paul's backyard - 115 Phillip Avenue, Scarborough Ontario.

So come on out, talk some Halloween, eat some snacks, and...oh...I don't know...buy some Ghoul Friday goodies. ;)
