About

Tim Murton’s Twilight Zoo, a unique collection of lantern sculptures, has been decorating the streets of Elora, during the month of October, for almost two decades. Visitors started coming to Elora from all over Southern Ontario to see the display and, as popularity grew, other organizations started adding themed events, leading to the name “Monster Month in Elora”.
