Calling all witches, ghosts and zombies!
Courtenay Recreation in partnership with The Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association, Active Comox Valley, Games and Grounds, and InCON Family Gaming Convention, are offering up a new revamped format for this year’s Halloween festivities on Friday, Oct. 31.
Something for everyone will be offered all the way from Fifth Street down to Old Island Highway.
Games, relays, a kids costume contest, Halloween photo booth and Thriller Flash Mob are all part of the fun on Duncan Avenue from 3-4 p.m. Then, from 4-5 p.m. children 12 and under (with an adult) will parade down Fifth Street while older zombies take over Fourth and Sixth streets for a zombie walk.
The fun does not stop there. The Lewis Centre is hosting its annual free children’s Halloween party with games and activities, bouncer, Witches Brew Café, prizes and more until 6 p.m.
Still want more? The LINC Youth Centre will have its half the fright night Haunted House set up from 6-8 p.m.
For older participants looking for an alternative to trick or treating, check out Games & Grounds’ Halloween Party and Costume Contest. The annual party comes complete with all sorts of ghoulish delights including games, activities, tricks, treats and an outdoor scavenger hunt.
At 10 p.m., the InCON Family Gaming Convention’s costume contest will take place, with prizes for: Best ‘Zombie’, Best ‘Super Hero’, Best ‘Themed Group’ and Best ‘Other’. Undiscovered Photography will also be on-site to take pictures of all the entrants.
