Ghosts, goblins and ghouls in Old Massett

A photo essay by Archie Stocker Sr.

Old Massett village went all out with a Halloween party at the community hall which a lot of kids and their parents attended before they were let loose to go trick or treating.

Droves of little goblins, ghouls and ghosts rushed along Eagle and Raven Ave. and tramped up and down many stairways happily swinging their baskets and bags around, trying to outdo each other.

It was well after 8 p.m. when things finally quieted down.

Fireworks organized by the Old Massett Volunteer Fire Department at the Old Massett ball field drew a large crowd and shattered the stillness with a brilliant display.

RCMP and fire crews patrolled the streets to make sure everyone was safe.
