The Sturgeon Falls Complex was completely decked out for the annual Kids Safe Halloween on Tuesday, as over 800 little monsters celebrated in a safe and warm environment, collecting candy from 27 spooky kiosks set up by local businesses and organizations. 

Renée-Anne Paquette, event organizer and Coordinator of Community Services for West Nipissing, says this year was another success.

“It was fantastic! All the kids had fun and it was another successful evening. I want to thank everyone who participated, and of course the local business and organizations for supporting the event once again. It wouldn’t be possible without them!” 

This year, the event followed a ‘haunted forest’ theme, and even included a family picture booth on the way out.

Before or after the Complex, many families took to the streets of West Nipissing to continue trick-or-treating door to door. While the evening was by and large fun and friendly, the West Nipissing Police did report a sinister incident.

“WNPS is reporting a relatively quiet Halloween night,” indicated WN Police Chief Chuck Seguin in a news release Wednesday morning. “With one exception. Over the counter medications were found in one trick or treater’s bag. We reinforce the need for parents to inspect what children have collected if you have not already done so. This sample pack of sleep aids may have originated from a residence south of Front Street in Sturgeon Falls.”
