PORT ALICE—Zombies rubbed shoulders with princesses while Ninjas crossed swords with pirates as the Community Centre hosted its annual Halloween Howl here last Friday.

Kicking off the Halloween season a week early, the Howl featured terrifying treats, a devilish dance and a fiendish photo booth providing fun for all ages.

Proving once again that Port Alice is a one-of-a-kind community, a mime (Elizabeth Brackett) served as announcer for a costume parade in which nobody moved. Top costume winners included Abby Roberts, Caleb McKenzie and new RCMP Constable Elijah Parish, who arrived as top Transformer Optimus Prime.

Halloween continues on the North Island this week, with Cafe Guido sponsoring the annual Costume Crawl on Market Street in Port Hardy Friday afternoon; fireworks shows with bonfire and refreshments at the Community Hall in Port McNeill Friday at 7 p.m. and at Storey’s Beach in Port Hardy Friday at 8 p.m.; and the annual Pumpkin Patch walk along Port Hardy’s waterfront Saturday from 6-8 p.m.
