Each year, the young of Oceanside gather together to celebrate this most precious time of year that is Halloween.

Nowhere is the spirit and joy of this celebration more enjoyed and encouraged than in the halls of Ballenas Secondary School, which this year is playing host to a day of fun, games and joviality through its Halloween Haunted House and Fair.


Organized by the graduating class of 2012, this exuberant extravaganza promises to be a delightful time that the whole family can enjoy.

“I absolutely can’t wait for it,” said Kelsie Wamer, organizer and all round Halloween buff.

“It’s going to be superb. I really think everybody will enjoy it.”

The young are encouraged to dress up and proudly display their costumes as they enjoy all the fun promised by a day of face painting, cake walks and much more.

“It’ll be splendid,” said Caitlin Craig, fellow organizer.

“We’ve so much planned, and I can’t wait to see all the costumes.”

The Halloween Haunted House and Fair will be at Ballenas Secondary on Saturday, October 29  from 1 to 5 p.m.

Tickets will be available at the door and all proceeds will go towards grad.
