Halloween happenings in Saanich

Halloween Spooktacular at Pearkes and many trick-or-treat options in Saanich neighbourhoods

Ghouls, goblins and plenty of treats will be haunting the streets of Saanich tonight during Halloween weekend.

This afternoon, Pearkes Rec Centre hosts games and entertainment during the Halloween Spooktacular between 1 and 2 p.m. Kids 5 and under are free. Then head over for trick-or-treating at Tillicum Centre between 3 and 4 p.m.

Over at Broadmead Village, shop owners will be giving out candy to their scary visitors between 3 and 5:30 p.m.

Participating stores will be identified by a Haunted Broadmead Village poster in their window.

Find hot chocolate, spooky music and more treats in the breezeway.

Four legged trick-or-treaters are also welcome to join the Halloween festivities.

At Pets West (see Page A1 for their furry employees), pets can pose for a picture with a professional photographer for a $2 donation to Victoria Adoptables.

Cadboro Bay Village businesses are also hosting a trick-or-treat afternoon between 3 and 5 p.m. Look for this poster in the on display in the shop’s window to know that they are participating. Participating merchants will be welcoming children in costume accompanied by parents.

Translate the ensuing sugar rush into a Halloween skate at Pearkes between 5:45 and 6:55 p.m. Wear a costume with a helmet and get in free. Enjoy the fun!
