Prince Rupert kicked off Halloween 2019 at the Nisga’a Hall’s haunted house, followed by a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and ending with Halloween Fest at the Civic Centre.

Port Edward residents also got in on the action with a haunted house and the Chamber of Chills hosted by the North Pacific Cannery the Sunday before Halloween.

Even Tinker Bell wears rain boots on the North Coast! submitted by Simone Clarke is the winner of The Northern Views front-page photo contest. Five-year-old Christine Dressel and her mom went trick-or-treating along the North Pacific Cannery who hosted their sixth annual Halloween event, Terror at the Cannery. Last year’s event brought out 694 people to NPC and this year saw just as many and complete devouring of the chili and hot dogs, according to Ann Leach, manager of the site. Port Edward Mayor Knut Bjorndal was in attendance giving out candy to the kids. Meanwhile, the spine-tingling Chamber of Chills attraction — a narrated walk through the company store — was choreographed to an original tale by Prince Ruperts Michael Gurney.
