Heritage Centre launching sports history exhibit, offering ghost walks and more this October

The Heritage Centre in Cayuga is hosting three special events in October, including the launch of its newest exhibit, “For the Love of the Game” which highlights Haldimand’s sporting past.

Mark your calendars and join museum staff on Wednesday, October 13 at 1:00 pm for the opening of “For the Love of the Game” and a special presentation featuring photos, sports memorabilia and an opportunity to learn about Haldimand’s NHL stars, gold medal winners and Olympians.

Just in time for Halloween and those who like a spooky tale or two, “Ghostly Tales of Haldimand County” offers in-person exploration of haunted locations throughout the County including the: Cayuga Courthouse, Haldimand’s famous “ghost town” Indiana, Caledonia’s nine-span bridge, the Grand River and more. This presentation takes place Wednesday, October 20 at 1:00 pm and again at 2:30 pm.

On Tuesday, October 26 at 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm, the popular “Ghost Walk Walking Tour of Cayuga” takes participants on a stroll through the village’s most ghostly haunts. Stories of murder, mayhem and ghost sightings will have shivers running down your spine!

Due to reduced capacity limits and in order to accommodate other visitors to the Heritage Centre, a maximum of six (6) patrons will be admitted for each presentation, and pandemic-related protocols remain in place.

Cost is $10.00 per person and pre-registration must be completed online at www.Link.HaldimandCounty.ca or in person at the Haldimand County Administration Building (53 Thorburn Street South, Cayuga).

Programs take place at the Cayuga Library + Heritage Centre, located at 19 Talbot Street West, Cayuga.
