Families trick or treating on Sidney’s Treat Street

Downtown Sidney was filled with trick-or-treaters on Halloween afternoon.

They were taking part in the Sidney Business Improvement Area’s (SBIA) annual Treat Street event. Local merchants along Beacon Avenue offered families treats and a lot of people dressed up in their Halloween best for the event.

Panorama Recreation also set up a spooky activities centre at the Mary Winspear Centre, featuring fun and games, face painting and the portable inflatable obstacle course.
