Creepy costumes, spectacular fireworks and ghostly Jack-o’-lanterns marked a spooky Halloween weekend on the North Island.

Creepy costumes, spectacular fireworks and ghostly Jack-o’-lanterns marked a spooky Halloween weekend on the North Island.

In Port McNeill, students at Sunset Elementary School took part in pumpkin carving and a costume parade Friday afternoon, receiving free hot chocolate while they watched their pumpkins light up onstage.

Meanwhile in Port Hardy, the 8th annual costume crawl started out at the Info Centre and continued down Market Street.

In the evening, both communities hosted their annual Halloween bonfires and fireworks, with free hot chocolate for kids.

The annual Pumpkin Patch walk took place the next day on the Port Hardy waterfront, with a bonfire, hot dogs, hot chocolate and glitter tattoos.

Here is just a selection of images from the weekend events.
