Ghosts aand goblins will roam the English Inn this Halloween.

The Township Community Arts Council will host its first Halloween event, in partnership with the English Inn.

Halloween Spook at the English Inn will be a chance for kids to dress up and have a good Halloween night. There will be trick or treating in the English Village, a photo booth, hot dogs and hot chocolate. There will also be various activity stations both inside and outside for kids.

“It’s going to be an all-around fascinating event that will help augment the current events that are being held in Esquimalt,” said Morlene Tomlinson, president of the Township Community Arts Council.

Other Halloween events in Esquimalt include the pumpkin swim at Esquimalt Recreation Centre and the Halloween bonfire at the Archie Browning Sports Centre parking lot.

Admission to the English Inn Halloween event is free, with donations being taken to support the Township Community Arts Council.

The event is designed to be child-friendly, said Tomlinson, adding that families are encouraged to come and have a fun, safe evening in the township.

Heather Greenlees, general manager of the English Inn, said she is looking forward to kids having fun on the property.

“We are here and we are open and we are vibrant and successful and creating community partnerships to build the strength of our wonderful little town here on this side of the bridge,” said Greenlees.

The Halloween Spook at the English Inn runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday. People are asked to email townshiparts@gmail.com if they are planning to go to ensure there is enough candy and other food for everyone.

The Township Community Arts Council will also be hosting an artist in residence program at the English Inn on Nov. 17, featuring local artist Richard Wong. Wong’s art will be on display at the Inn for six weeks, and he will give a short talk on his artistic methods at the opening.

 

Then on Nov. 30 is the third Township Classics Concert at the English Inn. To reserve seats, email townshiparts@gmail.com.
