Halloween 2019 in Kimberley

Community members across Kimberley and Cranbrook took part in Halloween festivities this year including dressing up and trick-or-treating on Halloween day, pumpkin carving contests, the annual Fort Steel Spooktacular and much more.

Save On Foods in Kimberley were dressed in costume while they announced the winner of their 4K Smart TV on Halloween day, which is going to a community member named Tia. They also raised $5,000 for B.C. Children’s Hospital through their recent round-up fundraiser.

This weekend the festivities continue with The Rep in Cranbrook screening the movie ‘The Shining’ on Friday, November 1, followed by the annual Kimberley Horror Fest (sold out) event on Saturday, November 2.
