Costumes highlighted at Halloween Howl

Heritage Park Museum invites families to its 13th annual celebration with 13 prizes for best costumes in Terrace B.C.

Heritage Park Museum hosts its 13th annual Halloween Howl with 13 prizes for best costumes.

For the past three years, the Henry family has won the prize for best-dressed family with its homemade costumes.

Last year, mom Joy, who makes the family’s costumes every year, said she only had two days to sew all the family’s Wizard of Oz costumes.

If you’re brave enough, compete with them for the best-dressed family or vie for one of the 12 other prizes to be handed out by the volunteers at each cabin. Prize categories include: spookiest costume (two prizes), best duo, best trio, most creative costume (two prizes), cutest costume, best-dressed family, funniest costume, strangest costume, best homemade costume, best-dressed baby, and most historical costume.

Children are invited to trick-or-treat amongst the spookily decorated historic log cabins at the museum. Several groups and volunteers from across the community took part in decorating the log cabins.

There will be thousands of candies to be given out, as well as hot drinks and a photo booth.

Security will be provided for the event, so you can rest assured that this will be a safe, family-friendly event.

Everyone is welcome, and admission is free or by donation.

The 13th annual Halloween Howl scares from 5 to 7 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 31 at Heritage Park Museum.
