More than 700 children enjoyed Hawkesbury’s Halloween event which took place on Friday, November 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. on Main Street.
The Trick-or-Treat event was presented by the Town of Hawkesbury and Comzac BIA. For the occasion, some businesses opened their door for a haunted house while others gave out candies on the street. And this year, for the first time, various characters wandered on Main Street to entertain young and old ones. Children had a chance to meet a fortune-teller, druids who came out of the middle ages, an awkward prisoner and some perched high fishers.
“We had so much fun handing out candies to all these kids! This year, we wanted to add some liveliness on the street and the characters met our expectations! It was great to see all these families dressed for Halloween who brave the cold and the wind for one night” said Zoe Fortin, recreation and tourism coordinator.
The success of this event is due to all the local businesses of Hawkesbury that were decorated and had staff in costume to give out candies.
Fortin says the town also thanks faithful sponsors of the annual charity golf tournament of the Town of Hawkesbury, for the benefit of the youth, held on June 8, 2019 for their generosity, which supported the event.
