Legends of Horror returned as the sun set and moon came out September 28th for a special preview evening of one of Toronto’s favourite Halloween experiences. A highlight this evening was a rocking performance by Cold Weather Captains to make this a real happening. You see there is always music at Casa Loma. Imagine, just within one month of the successful summer series of Soul in the City and Symphonies in the Garden, the castle has undergone a total transformation that is even bigger and bolder than last year thanks to the vision of Nick and Nadia Di Donato.
Liberty Entertainment Group was won awards lately for bringing families of all ages to the castle on the hill because of such creative programming. If you prepare for the unexpected with a combination of gruesome characters and huge animatronics jumping out of the darkness as you walk over a 2 kilometre trail taking you through the lower gardens and dimly lit tunnels of the castle.
Many new surprises are part of what is termed “presentational form as promenade theatre” with some outstanding 3D castle projections. You may even get to meet Dr. Frankenstein in his rat-infested labratory. Legends of Horror runs till October 31st and I recommend you book tickets early at www.legendsofhorror.ca My thanks to Liberty Entertainment Group and Susan Willemsen of the Siren Group for my invitation to experience something so special.
