Courtenay celebrated Halloween on Saturday with a free event downtown held by Courtenay Recreation in partnership with the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association (DCBIA).

The free afternoon event, on and around Duncan Avenue, was geared toward families and included music from DJ Re#Sister (progressive ethno-electronic from around the world), photos, games, treats and more.

The Courtenay Library and Comox Valley Lifelong Learning Centre put on activities like Books for Treats and Giant Jenga and making your own pumpkin face button. Other organizations taking part were Comox Valley Arts, Courtenay & District Museum and Island Health, and in the evening, there was more fun at the LINC Youth Centre’s Haunted House at the Old Island Highway.
