Every October this village in Ontario gets invaded by Monsters...

Halloween is my favourite holiday. My township has a reputation for Halloween because of this one artist's vision.

I’ve been working around the clock on projects during COVID-19, essentially switching to a full-time content creator. This is one of the projects I'm very excited to share with you.

It's really something unique.

My community rests on a particular stretch of two converging rivers in Ontario that have carved stunning landscapes and especially photo-worthy during the autumn season.

This area has been a magnet for incredible artists, like Tim Murton

Over a decade ago, Tim Murton, started a Halloween tradition he called Twilight Zoo that is now in its eighteen-year.

Monster Month, as it's called now, hosts multiple events (more pre-covid) through October and has transitioned to the hands of local non-profit, Sensational Elora.

What began with four ghouls has grown into a swath of over eighty monsters that now invade the village of Elora every October, thanks to Tim Murton and the tireless work of Kirk McElwain.

In the spirit of Halloween and the new restrictions under COVID, I wanted to help share the story of the monsters, the people who make it happen and the journey of Monster Month.

It is a thirty-minute behind the scenes look at Monster Month that will air online at and locally on YourTV Cogeco.

Here are a few images from filming and production:

Please consider making a small contribution to support the future of Monster Month. It’s organized by a very small team of volunteers from Sensational Elora, a non-profit organization that does great work all year long.
