The Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce hosts the 10th annual Halloween Trick or Treat Spooktacular

A number of downtown Armstrong businesses are opening their doors to ghouls, goblins and other costumed trick or treaters on Halloween Saturday from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce is inviting children 12 and under to participate in its 10th annual Halloween Trick or Treat Spooktacular, which gives young trick or treaters in the community an opportunity to enjoy a safe Halloween.

“All children, in costume, are invited to join the fun,” said Patti Noonan, chamber of commerce executive director.

Those who don’t have a downtown storefront but want to participate in the treat trail can partner up with a downtown business.

Participating businesses will be marked with black and orange balloons on Saturday and the Armstrong Royal Canadian Legion will provide hot chocolate for parents and children.

More information about the event is available at the chamber of commerce website at www.aschamber,com.
