COURTENAY, B.C. – A Halloween street party is in full swing in downtown Courtenay.

A table is set up in front of the Comox Valley Art Gallery on Duncan Avenue, where young artists are invited to fashion a mysterious mask and create a spooky leaf monster from supplies provided by gallery staff.

The street party, which has Duncan Avenue closed to traffic, is a precursor to the City of Courtenay’s annual children’s Halloween Parade.
