The Community Centre was crawling with ghouls, goblins, fairies and other supernatural creatures Monday as local children came out for the annual Halloween Party and Haunted House.
It was a a lot of fun to see the kids in their costumes, especially the really young ones who were just discovering that getting really dressed up can mean they’ll get some treats.
The Grade Seven class from Arrow Heights Elementary School did an absolutely first-class job on the Hunted House this year, too. There lots of nameless horrors, ghouls, zombies and other creatures of the night who put a terrific show for kids both young and old.
If you’d like to revisit it you can, albeit through our photos. Happy Halloween!

At times the kids looked like cast members from Night of the Living Dead. David F. Rooney photo Yet another unknown fiend in the night. David F. Rooney photo Wait a minute! Could this be evidence of true paranormal activity? Was the Haunted House truly haunted? David F. Rooney photo Haunted Houses always have a Lurch (or is it a Thing?) in a corner somewhere. David F.
