Haunted houses and candy galore this Halloween in Fort St. John

This year the theme is Harry Potter, and from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. children of all ages can take a guided tour through the haunted halls and dungeon. Entry is by donation to the Family Place programs, and children must be accompanied by a parent. 

Familes can then head down to the Evangel Chapel’s Candy Planet at the Totem Mall from 5 to 8 p.m. Presented by Century 21, and sponsored by Evangel Chapel, Moose FM and Totem Mall, little ghouls and goblins will find inflatable toys, games, and, of course, plenty of candy. 

Lastly, once the costumes have been put away and the candy unwrapped, the Northern Environmental Action Team is hosting its annual Pumpkin Plunge at Home Hardware on November 2. Starting at 9 a.m., bring your pumpkins to be dropped off a high platform onto a target. Yard waste can also be brought to be composted along with the discarded pumpkins.
