Langford Fire Rescue wasn’t messing around Saturday afternoon. With $1,500 worth of candy and 3,000 full-sized chocolate bars, they were making every child’s Halloween dream come true.
Sticking with COVID-19 protocols, the crew organized a drive-thru trick-or-treating event from 2 to 5 p.m. at the West Shore Town Centre.
As cars steadily trickled through, firemen used pitchers to dump healthy helpings of sweets into the open hands of gleeful children.
People were also reminded to hold onto their pumpkins for the annual Langford Fire Rescue Pumpkin Smash on Nov. 7.
For anyone planning on going trick-or-treating tonight, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control has recommended doing so in small groups, wearing masks, and washing hands before and after having a treat.
The CDC also recommends handing out candy with tongs or on a tray.
