Mme. Odegard's class at 100 Mile House Elementary School on Halloween Day.

Halloween was celebrated in various ways this year in the South Cariboo.

There were a number of events around 100 Mile House on the day before Halloween.

The White Cane club had their annual Halloween sale at the Cedar Crest Thrift shop while down the street, the Creekside Community Seniors Centre held its Halloween Potluck.

Later that afternoon the Halloween bingo was well attended at the 100 Mile House Community Hall

On Halloween, residents old and new came out to Trunk or Treat in Lone Butte to enjoy Halloween night with family and friends followed by a fantastic fireworks display.

In 100 Mile House Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School offered a haunted house to celebrate the ghoulish holiday while children at the elementary school had a dance and parties in the afternoon.

A frightfully good time was had by all.
