Lots of activities in Kimberley this Halloween

It’s Halloween on Saturday, Kimberley, and there is no shortage of ghoul-related activities available.

While many kids prefer traditional trick or treating and go door to door in the early evening, this year there are a couple of other options as well.

For the parent who may be looking to go out to one of the Halloween dances (more about those a bit later) Kimberley’s Chamber of Commerce and Platzl merchants are offering The Platzl Safe Halloween —a family friendly trick or treating event.

Organized by Daleen Bybee, you are invited to bring your kids to the Platzl from 2 to 4 p.m. Shops who are participating will have a sign in their window. This will be the second year for the Family Trick or Treating event and last year was a great success by all accounts.

Another special tradition in Kimberley is the Mark Creek Lions Halloween Bonfire. At two locations, Centennial Hall in Kimberley and Central Park in Marysville, drop by for free hotdogs and hot chocolate, and warm up by the bonfire from 6 to 9 p.m.

After the trick or treating is over, it’s time for adults to get out. There are two Halloween dances this year. The Kimberley Elks Club is presenting Nightmare on Elk Street, a Techno Halloween. There will be a $15 cover charge. And over at Centre 64, drop in to the Spooktacular Dance at 8 p.m. Big prizes for the best costume. $20 per ticket.
