Published on

Do you love getting dressed up and all things spooky? What about pumpkin carving and trick or treating?

If so, you’ll love Halloween in Pemberton. It is one of the most fun and family friendly places to spend October 31. The community comes together to celebrate, with decorations in every window and friendly faces to greet trick or treaters.

Here’s what is happening this year:

Halloween at the museum

This year the Pemberton District Museum is hosting Halloween at the Museum. It’s a fun event for children with admission by donation.

Taking place from 12-3pm there will be a spooky school house, hot dog and marshmallow roast, hot drinks and activities for all ages. There will also be a Jack-O-Lantern carving contest for children age 3-12.

For the contest please bring in a PRE-CARVED pumpkin to be displayed and entered into the contest to win a prize.

As always there will be fireworks at the Signal Hill Elementary School field. Wrap up warm and head down to take in the spectacle. It’s always nice to see the community out as one dressed up and enjoying Halloween!

If you are setting off your own fireworks remember to be safe and practice proper firework safety procedures.

Pumpkin patch

Every year North Arm Farm puts on a pumpkin patch where you can buy and pick your own pumpkin.

Not only can you pick out your pumpkin, but you can be taken out to the field by horse drawn wagon courtesy of Blackcomb Sleigh Rides.

The pumpkin patch usually operates from early October until the 31st.

Guess the weight

Guess the weight is back at the Pemberton Valley Lodge! Those taking part are in with a chance of winning a night’s stay at the hotel. All you have to do is guess the weight of the giant pumpkin in the hotel’s lobby.

Trick or treat

It just wouldn’t be Halloween without trick or treat. Pemberton is one of the most perfect places to head out and enjoy the festivities as it is so family friendly.

You should always remember to be safe though and still head out in groups of two or more, or with a responsible adult.

The community really embraces the spirit of the day and you can expect to see lots of decorations and costumes. One of the most popular places to trick or treat is The Glen. This is a very child friendly area where everyone will be dressed up and having fun being spooky!
