While Halloween can be filled with haunted houses, scary costumes and frightening spooks, the holiday can also be lighthearted and fun for young kids to enjoy. Families who are staying at the Walnut Beach Resort for the October celebration can take advantage of a handful of different family-friendly activities, from corn mazes and a monster bash to pumpkin carving contests and all-night dance parties.
Penticton, only a few minutes away from British Columbia's Osoyoos, is filled with these adventurous festivities all week leading up to the big day, and families can pick from The Great Pumpkin Party or the Halloween Extravaganza, to name a few.
Those who are travelling with their tiny tots should head to either of these events, held on October 26 and 27 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Kid-friendly crafts, music and games will take place all morning long, and of course, kids should remember to come decked out in their costumes.
The Penticton community aims to bring these seasonal events to families in the area and visitors staying at the luxurious Osoyoos hotel, keeping attendees entertained all year-round.
