Lots to do at Halloween

  • Oct. 26, 2005 6:00 p.m.

It’s a very scary time of year and islanders can have some hair-raising Halloween experiences this weekend.
Tonight (Thursday) is your last chance to visit the Haunted House in Queen Charlotte. The rooms of terror have been open for a couple of days, but tonight marks the end of this year’s show.
In Masset, the all-island Halloween dance takes place on Friday, October 28 at 10 pm the Masset Teen Centre. Apple bobbing takes place before it, so get your choppers ready. A bus will pick up teens, parents and volunteers at bus stops in Old Masset at 8 pm and returns at 2 am.
There are a couple of different dance options on Saturday night. Prizes will be given for the best party face at the Queen Charlotte community hall as the band, Twitch, gets people shaking. Tickets are $15 at Charlisle, Taaw Naay and from Dolores Davis’s costume store.
In Port Clements, the dance will be held at the community hall, with DJ provided. Prizes will be offered, but no minors are allowed.
For the young ones, the 1971 classic magical witch movie “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” plays at the Port Community Hall at 6:30 pm on October 30.
As well, the bars in several communities have special activities planned. Check it out!
And then, there’s always the option of throwing a sheet over your head, cutting out eyeholes and gliding ghoulishly down the street on trick or treat night, October 31.
