Spook-tacular Halloween, 2023!

Leader staff

Here comes the Bride

Harlow Lukan Kubel made quite an impression as Corpse Bride at the E.G. Wahlstrom School Costume Parade on Oct. 31. She says she did all the make-up herself.

Bombs away

Firefighting student Lee Morrison had the job of tossing pumpkins from the regional fire service ladder, high above the parking lot at CJ Schurter School in Slave Lake on Oct. 31. The ‘pumpkin drop’ event was not only a fun bit of entertainment for CJS students and staff, but also a training exercise for Northern Lakes College firefighting students, on how to operate the ladder truck, as well as how to negotiate a very long ladder while carrying pumpkins. As far as we know, a good time was had by all, except maybe the pumpkins.

Mini Monster

This is one of the families that stopped by The Leader as part of Mini Monster Halloween on Oct. 31. Left to right are Dennis, Lydia, and Leah, as Robin Hood, Maid Marian and a damsel.
Various local businesses took part in Mini Monster, which is organized by Community Futures Lesser Slave Lake as a safe daytime alternative to trick-or-treating in the dark.

Graveyard hoedown?

Jeff and Alex Bain of 10th Ave. SE in Slave Lake again went all out in creating a Halloween display in their driveway. This was only a small part of it. When you approached, the skeletons started playing their fiddles and singing.

Watch out… there’s a dinosaur following you!
