The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD)’s sports centre will deliver a spirited activity night on October 31.

At the Fright Night Spooktacular, participants can skate, swim, and watch a movie for one fee of $5 including skate rentals and popcorn. The event is costume-optional and is open to area residents of all ages with particular appeal to tweens and early teens.

“We wanted to give local youth a way to celebrate Halloween in a fun, event styled environment,” says Jennifer Dickins, manager of recreation programs for the CVRD. “Parents can feel confident knowing this event will be a unique, safe environment for their kids.”

Fright Night starts with a skate at 7:45 p.m., where skaters will enjoy today’s top 40 hits, and then the activity moves to the pool at 9:00 p.m. for the “flick and float”. The movie – an animated family fantasy – will be shown at 9:15 p.m.
