The Spooktacular Extravaganza was another ghoulish hit on Saturday, October 29.

The event, which was held at the Fox Run/ Mother Teresa School, featured hundreds of in cognito guests mingling with other goblins, ghosts and ghouls.

Town of Sylvan Lake Communications Officer Joanne Gaudet said the Town was happy to put on the event as family-friendly way for residents to get together on Halloween.

“They can enjoy all sorts of free activities,” she said, adding that the show this year featured a reptile show, bouncy castles and a photo booth.

Spooktacular is part of a Town initiative to provide cost-friendly entertainment for Sylvan Lakers year-around.

“With the number of young families in Town and the growing sense of community from that we absolutely see more people every year,” Gaudet said. “We are committed to puting on Town-run special events including 1913 Days, Winterfest and Light Up the Lake. We want to have something for every season and Halloween is an easy call.”

She added that it is also nice for families to get more than one use out of their Halloween costumes.
