After cancelling its annual Halloween festivities last year due to the pandemic, SOS Labyrinthe is back and ready to celebrate all things spooky and scary throughout October. There will be themed décor, a festive atmosphere and mysterious phenomena for visitors to discover, including inexplicable events, moving shadows and even strange beings from outer space. Visitors can check out the creepy goings on from October 2-31 (weekends and holidays only) from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
SOS Labyrinthe is a two-km-long urban maze that celebrates Montreal’s maritime history. Located in Hangar 16 in the Old Port of Montreal, legend has it that the hangar is home to Stevie and Mayday, two longshoremen who began working there in 1942. Over the years, through their work hauling cargo, they witnessed historic moments in Montreal—and collected the artifacts to prove it.
Known as the treasures of the longshoremen, they tell the stories of Montreal and its history and are hidden throughout the maze, waiting for the lucky visitor who can find away around the dead ends to uncover them.
