This past Friday night we took Spooky Lagoon’s Toronto Island Tour and learned about the island’s past and the legendary murder at the Gibraltar Point lighthouse. I’ve been to the island many times, but there is something inherently more sinister about it once night falls. Maybe it’s the fact that you’re cut off from the mainland, or that the hordes of people there during the day have long disappeared, or that the unofficial mayor of the island Jimmy Jones narrates your boat ride with a sad nostalgia for what was. It’s the perfect setting for a ghost story, and a great new way to experience something that many of us take for granted. I definitely recommend checking this out while you can as there aren’t many dates and tickets left.
