Nerdy Things To Do In Edmonton This Weekend (Oct. 27-29th)

Ok, look. The weekend before Halloween is always busy and there is just no way I can list every single Halloween event in Edmonton. I’m sticking with the nerdier venues and what they’re up to (I’m glad to see so much out there though). Scary movies abound this weekend with Metro Cinema and the Telus World of Science both having scary movies all weekend (see below for details).

You can get in on two different VR Haunted Houses with Inception VR at Londonderry Mall and Game OVR in St. Albert.

Wow, is it busy… Saturday has free comics with Halloween ComicFest, Star Wars Reads, Scary Stories, an Overwatch Halloween Party, Zombie Survival and a School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.

Sunday has Edmonton’s First Official Twitch Community Meetup, the Pop Culture Fair, Kids Learning Code – Halloween Edition and Zombie Makeup!

Did I mention there’s free comics at most comic stores?
