At first glance, Montreal’s Ghost Walk might seem like some canned tourist experience where you venture into a Haunted House and some guy with a sheet on his head yells “Boo!” On the contrary, it’s a wonderful theatrical affair that families with older children should not miss. Meet at 8:30 p.m. at the Place d’Armes, grab a lantern, map and French flag, and get ready to wander along the back alleys of Old Montreal for 90 minutes to find four ghosts. This is no group tour. You’re on your own to meet up with ghosts, who tell their stories of being burned, tortured and ostracized in the 1700s. The acting is so good that kids should be at least 10 years old, or they might run away terrified by the hauntingly real stories and makeup.
