Back in July this blog posted information about summer NEAT tours (Newcomers Explore and Appreciate Toronto).

Neat Tours are back, this time with a free tour especially for newcomers of haunted Toronto and just in time for Halloween. Walkers will learn about the history and hauntings of famous Toronto buildings:

It all takes place on Saturday October 26th at 1:30 p.m. The tour group is meeting in front of Union Station, on the southeast corner of Front Street and York Street.  The tour ends at Nathan Phillips Square (City Hall) at 3 p.m. Stick around and you can see the annual Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade.  Of course, you'll want to bring a camera. And why not wear your own costume and be part of the spectacle?

Sign up for NEAT walking tours through meetup.com/NEATwalks or call CultureLink at 416-588-6288 extension 231.

NEAT has some tips to follow if you are joining one of their walking tours:

  • All walks are free and everyone is welcome!
  • Be on time or earlier so that the walk willl begin on time
  • Be prepared for the weather - walks take place rain or shine
  • Bring a water bottle and snack
  • Bring a camera
  • Have fun!
