Magic & mystery
Downtown Hawkesbury became Trick-or-Treat Central for children early Friday evening courtesy of the Hawkesbury Business Improvement Association (BIA) and participating downtown merchants. Children in costumes and makeup made their way up and down a cordoned-off section of Main Street, with their parents, some in costume and some in regular street clothes, following along as chaperones. At every store and restaurant that was open for business, the children also found the merchants, also in costume and ready to welcome trick-ortreaters with treats, and in some places with tricks as well, like the Spooky Mystery Tour that the owners of Pure Pain Tattoo and Piercing and the Salon Pür offered through their conjoined facilities.
Guy Janssens at the grill and other members of the Hawkesbury Rotary Club partnered with the Hawkesbury Business Improvement Association to provide a steady supply of hot dogs and other picnic type treats available for children at Place des Pionniers during Friday evening’s Halloween’s Children’s Fest event on Oct. 27.
Elizabeth Webber of C’est Ta Communauté hands out treats at the Halloween Park amusement area set up at the Place des Pionniers as part of a Community Children’s Halloween Party organized in downtown Hawkesbury by the Hawkesbury Business Improvement Association (BIA). The Oct. 27 event offered safe Halloween fun for children and parents on a warm October
