Home made Halloween

Fall has arrived on Gabriola, and there is no better place to celebrate Halloween than on the island.

The mornings right now are full of mist, adding a sense of mystery. Spider webs can be found on the old split rail fencing and the “Haunted Hollow” holds promise of the pumpkins to be displayed in just a few days that will light up the tunnel on the island.

The natural elements encouraged us to start our home-made Halloween creations. On Saturday, we picked apples fresh from the tree and created Candy Apples, thanks to a Martha Stewart recipe!
We had so much fun that we decided to do Halloween treats for the class, mummified drink boxes – these turned out more cute than scary, but fun to share. We finished up the weekend by making some costumes, you may have an owl or a vampire bat show up at your doorstep this year.

Come celebrate Halloween with us on Gabriola there’s lots to do; a haunted house on Lyngail, fireworks display & hot chocolate sponsored by the Gabriola Volunteer Fire Department starts at 7pm at the Twin Beaches, the pumpkins on display in the tunnel (North Road & Elgie), trick and treating (on the Strand or Islands View areas)– just to mention a few! Hope you have a spooktacular time!
