Halloween Fun Night fantastic

The Princeton Exhibition Grounds swarmed with approximately 700 (or so) people on Saturday, Oct. 27.

This lovely haunted bride (Larissa Simon) greeted attendees as they came to the end of their tour of the spook house during Halloween Family Fun Night at the Princeton Exhibition Grounds on Saturday

Organizers of Halloween Family Fun Night, Jennifer Bernard and Dawne Graves hosted the second annual event which has grown in both the creative processes and attendance from last year.

The Princeton Highway Extrication crew ran the popular three legged obstacle race.

Local R.C.M.P., B.C. Ambulance Service and Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade personnel walked the grounds and passed out treats to children. The Princeton Fire Brigade  manned the bonfire as well.

Double J P.S.Y.C.H.O.S. Concession crew were on hand cooking and serving burgers, hot dogs, fries and onion rings, all compliments of; Princeton Rodeo, Little Britches Rodeo, Princeton Racing Days and the Princeton & District Agricultural Fair.

The spook house came to fruition with thanks to the sponsors of fun night and the creative processes of the following; the Zombie Corner, grave yard, spooky tunnel and the science laboratory (manned by evil scientist, Travis Driver) – Doug, Jim and Jennifer Bernard; the Witches Kitchen and dart game – Karrie and Dino Crucil and family; the second grave yard – Rayleen Brewer and son Theo Jr. Goeson and last but definitely not least, the Corners of Horror – including the lovely haunted bride (Larissa Simon) Tina Krause, Sandy Derker and family.

The Tiny Tot Spook House was created by Dawne and Tim Graves,  the Halloween Craft Room with thanks to Erin Williams and family with assistance from Robin Kimmie and the Spooky Feel by Lynn Johnson and Lisa Carleton.

Northern Lights Fireworks topped the evening off with an incredible fireworks display.

With on and off light rain for most of the evening, the community was able to enjoy fun night until approximately 8:30 p.m., when a downpour hurried the evening to a close.

A special thank you goes out to Lynch Bus Lines and Mr. Barth for providing a ride to and from fun night.

Much appreciation goes out to all the sponsors of Halloween Family Fun Night and to the dedicated group of volunteers who made the evening such a success.
