Elora Twilight Zoo

This weekend we headed to the picturesque town of Elora to see the famous Twilight Zoo. The creator, Tim Murton, creates monsters out of wire and paper and was featured on Martha Stewart's Halloween special in 2011.
 

The sculptures are out front of local shops and in the towns green space, so we went on a nice walking tour of the town. 


Happy little Jack-o-Lantern!


Unicorn and mushrooms in the town square

Another giant spider, it looked more like something from the movie Aliens!

A not too spooky sunflower...


...a wizard...


...a ghostly dinner party...


...and a giant crow! This is the porch of a local business, the bird has to be 6 feet tall! 

Elora is a beautiful, historic small town that has a great artistic community. It is only an hour and a half from Toronto but feels worlds away. I can't wait to head back during business hours, the shops and restaurants looked amazing!
