For a spooky and delicious time, celebrate the Barnyard Halloween at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum

OTTAWA, October 24, 2014 – Costumed trick-or-treaters are sure to enjoy their favourite time of the year as the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum (CAFM) celebrates a Barnyard Halloween this week-end.

On Saturday and Sunday October 25 and 26, the barns at the Museum will be crawling with scary activities and delicious treats for everyone. Visitors can attempt to put Mr Bones back together before the clock expires, identify animals from their skeletons, create creepy creatures with Dr Franken-Stein, who has taken on the appearance of her favourite cow breed.

Those who favour treats over tricks will have the opportunity to indulge their sweet tooth as well. In addition to sweets being given out to all who complete the Halloween scavenger hunt, visitors will have the chance to learn how to make spooky snacks, such as killer kebobs, and even candies made of potatoes!

It wouldn’t really be Halloween without a few classic activities as well. Come decorate a pumpkin (there as a 1 $ additional cost per pumpkin, limit of one pumpkin per child, while supplies last), or show off your amazing costume during one of the parades!

A Barnyard Halloween at the CAFM is presented by Nestlé Canada. For more information, please visit
