Hundreds and hundreds of carved pumpkins will be displayed behind the Oak Bay Municipal Hall featuring the likes of local personalities, cartoon characters, the Royal Family, the Beatles and more. Admission is by donation and the proceeds benefit Oak Bay Sea Rescue's campaign to refit and replace their rescue boats. Pumpkin Art is open from 5pm to 9 pm beginning October 27. Pumpkin Art is open until 10 pm on October 31.

Trick or Treat on the Avenue
Every Halloween Oak Bay Village merchants host a giant community trick or treat! Participating merchants offer trick or treat in the stores from Foul Bay Road to Monterey Avenue between 2 and 5 pm. A complete list of participating merchants, identified by the pumpkin poster in their window, will be posted a week before Halloween.
Enjoy live music throughout the event as well as a variety of entertainment including jugglers, stilt walkers, hula hoopers, magic, balloon twisting and more!
Following the trick or treat, the Municipality of Oak Bay hosts a bonfire in Fireman’s Park with hot dogs, hot chocolate and a Halloween costume contest.
