Plenty of Halloween spirit

It became most evident this past weekend as I travelled the Interlake, just how many people and organizations are into the spirit of Halloween.

I had the opportunity to photograph Fright at the Fort, which was extremely well done. Lower Fort Garry not only hosts this event, but also Fort Scary. The Marine Museum of Manitoba also gets into the act of scaring people as they host their annual Halloween Haunt.

I had the chance to visit a new attraction in Gimli as Zombie outbreak took place.  Boonstra Farms just outside Stonewall continue their Halloween tradition by welcoming visitors to their corn maze.
Malcolm’s Haunted Forest continues to spook visitors who dare enter the haunted forest just outside Lundar.

For me, Halloween has represented more than just trick or treating for candy. My nana Smith passed away on Halloween many years ago. Before her passing in 1985 she always loved seeing my sister and I dressed up on Halloween. So, each year, when I dress up it’s always with fun filled memories of my nana.

I hope all the young trick or treaters in the Interlake have a safe fun-filled Halloween with lots of goodies.

Happy Halloween.
