We also went to the Visitor's Center to take advantage of the upcoming "Monster Month" in October and dropped off a stack of pamphlets and a poster for our Hallowe'en tour. (The poster is already up!)
We lunched in the beautiful park alongside the gorge close to "Lover's Leap" and then visited with the Monster Month Queen herself, Julie Denneny. First we glimpsed the INCREDIBLE new creatures Tim Murton is working on for the Twilight Zoo, and for the new park in Elora he's bringing to life a stunning Unicorn!!! WHOA!!!! Tim used to work in Hollywood in set creation... I hope to have an opportunity to see more of his work. Julie was at her Bed and Breakfast so we enjoyed walking there admiring the stunning, unique houses! Wiggit Hall is very welcoming (named after her beloved cat) and we enjoyed sitting on the porch and discussing Scare Fair, the cemetery that we'll be putting up and so many other details about this incredible event! If you're in the area, consider getting involved: Julie would very much appreciate your extra hands!!!! Anything Hallowe'en!
Before heading home we walked around the downtown area a bit (a beautiful place to spend some time, by the way, I highly recommend it) and brought home some delicious almond croissants and other pastries from Pastry & Fine Cakes (135 Metcalfe). And we still got home in time to feed Willow her dinner!
Here's a close-up view of one of the beasties from last year's Twilight Zoo.
