Halloween fun in Barriere

lots of different Halloween related events available for all throughout Barriere and area

For those of you who like to celebrate Halloween, there are a lot of different events to choose from this year.

On Oct. 26, there are two choices… and you can just about make both of them if you work at it.  Right after the 3 p.m. meat draw at the Legion, there will be hosting a Halloween Dance, with DJ music provided by Charlie Kibble.  This event will include prizes for the best costume, with judging to take place at 9 p.m.

The same evening, the Barriere Secondary School Dry Grad 2014 committee will be holding a ‘Halloween Howler’ at the Fall Fair Hall.  This event will start at 9 p.m.  If you purchase the tickets ahead of time, the cost is $10, while if you pick them up at the door, they will cost $12.  The music at this event will be by Tony’s DJ Service.  No minors to this event, please, and designated drivers will be available by donation.  Adult participants are asked to be responsible role models for the grads by making arrangements for a safe ride home.

On Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31, besides the usual trick-or-treating carried out by the kids, there will be a Kid’s Halloween Night put on by the Yellowhead Community Services, and held at the Ridge (Municipal Hall).  The cost is five dollars per child, and kids will learn how to make Wingetti, Severed Head Lettuce, and Ghoulish Mud Pie.  Please attend in costume, and each child must be accompanied by at least one adult.  Space is limited for this one, so please register early by calling 250-672-9773.

At dusk on the same night, there will be two Halloween fireworks displays to choose from.  One will be hosted by the Barriere Volunteer Fire Department and will be held at the Barriere Ball Fields.  Hot chocolate and treats will be served.

The other will be at the Little Fort Community Hall, hosted by the Little Fort Fire Department, with hot chocolate and treats also being served.

Simpcw First Nation will also be holding a Halloween Party on Oct. 31, the fun starts at 6 p.m. in the Chu Chua Community Hall.
