Halloween is happening at this Richmond-area mall

You don’t have to wait until October 31 to celebrate Halloween. In fact, Lansdowne Centre begins celebrating the holiday long before then. The popular Halloween train and ‘Scarousel’ (Halloween Carousel) children’s rides are back this year and operating every day during mall hours until October 31.

Tickets are $4 each, or you can get a book of seven tickets for $20, says Lansdowne Centre’s marketing manager Bronwyn Bailey.  

The “goolish” rides are popular every year for Halloween but are also available—in less scary iterations—during other seasons. “[The rides] also come to the mall during Spring Break and Christmas every year. Tickets bought during one holiday can be kept and used next time,” explains Bailey.

Lansdowne Centre also holds a Trick or Treat evening on October 31 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Kids in costume can Trick or Treat at participating stores around the mall. Bailey says: “Parents love Trick or Treating in a shopping mall because it’s safe, warm, dry and there are lots of stores to visit. It’s also great for families who have more than one kid or have younger children who are new to Trick or Treating.”

To enter to win a free book of ride tickets, visit Lansdowne Centre’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Also this fall, the mall will hold a win-what-you-want contest, running October 9 through October 31 and Bailey encourages shoppers to stop by Lansdowne Centre Customer Service to obtain an official shopping list entry form for a chance to win what’s on your list up to a value of $500 from Lansdowne Centre shops and services.
