Civic Centre to serve as a most Spooktacular venue for 32nd Annual Community Hallowee'en Fest
All ghosts, goblins, superheroes and other assorted costumed trick and treaters will be making their way to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre on Thursday evening, with Games, prizes and treats for those that take in the annual event.
The Civic Centre event takes place from 6 to 8 PM with many returning favourite activities from years past and some new ideas as well. Admission to the event is free, but if you wish you can offer a donation to help reduce the cost of the annual event
The final preparations continue to line up all the events, with the twin highlights of the night the costume parade at 6:15 and then the annual fireworks display set for an 8:15 appearance in the sky over the golf course with Mount Hays serving as the backdrop for the display of local pyrotechnics, weather permitting of course!
In addition to the Civic Centre events, the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre will also be hosting events with a teen swim set to take place from 7 to 10 PM.
The 2019 edition of Hallowe'en Fest comes together with help from a range of local services and businesses, included in the list of those lending a hand or financial support are:
Prince Rupert RCMP
Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue
City of Prince Rupert
Many of Prince Rupert's Service Clubs and volunteer organizations
Save On Foods, Canada Safeway, Via Rail, Northern Savings Credit Union, The Northern View, Canadian Tire (Terrace) as well as a number of local businesses.
As always, volunteers are what have helped to make the event the long time fixture it has become, ad the call is out for help for Thursday's event.
If you have some time to help out, call 250-62GHOST (250-624-4678) to see what they need and how you can fit into the night's events.
This year Prince Rupert Transit is helping to get trick and treaters to their destination, with Free Transit to be offered from 6 to 9 PM on Thursday.
