Run through a corn maze at Le Verger Labonté

Pick up a pumpkin pie donut from Leche Desserts

Learn about squash at the Pick A Peck of Pumpkins exhibition

What: Every fall, pumpkin becomes the star of the show. We carve them, roast them, and make pies out of them. Unfortunately this means other veggies in the squash family gets left behind. This unique and educational exhibition at Chateau Ramezay intends to write this wrong by creating an exhibit entirely on squash! Learn about the vegetable’s native American origins and all the different types.
When: Until November 6
Where: Chateau Ramezay, 280 Notre-Dame Street East

Play an escape game at A/MAZE

A/MAZE will challenge you in more ways than you thought possible, and there’s only one way to escape: by solving the puzzle. In a limited amount of time, you’ll have to find clues, crack codes, and solve problems in one of their themed rooms, ranging from a 1926 prison cell to a mad scientist’s lab.
When: Monday to Thursday 2 pm-10 pm, Friday to Sunday 10 am-10 pm
