If you’ve visited Elora recently - you may have noticed the downtown area looks a little different. Since 1996, local acclaimed artist, Tim Murton, has adorned the streets of Elora during October with whimsical and haunting lantern sculptures.

From starting as just the Twilight Zoo, Monster Month has turned into a spectacle with local artists, community groups, businesses and organizations joining in on the fun by adding themed events into the mix!
