Winner of the 2017 Saltair Halloween Costume contest!
Costume: Fire engine, Dalmatians complete with a burning building. Well done!
Saltair volunteer residents once again came together to host the Halloween event at Centennial Park. The weather was on our side as 60 very well-costumed children paraded around the picnic shelter for just rewards, including the grand prize of “Ice Cream for a Year”, donated by 49th Parallel Grocery, well earned by a fire department-inspired family.
Approximately, 150 residents gathered around the traditional bonfire, enjoying hotdogs, coffee, hot chocolate and juice. The evening was capped off with a spectacular fireworks display organized by local residents.
It takes a lot of people working together to make events like this a success. Many thanks to the Beadle, Irving, Fotheringham, Hockin, Wilson, Key, Rutti, Milne, Brocklebank, MacDowell, Evans, Dorey, Wright families and the CVRD. Also, thanks to 49th Parallel Grocery, Great Canadian Dollar Store and Dairy Queen for being sponsors again this year.
