KidSafe Halloween Party


The Children who attended the party

The Village of Mannville may be a small community but it is a mighty community when it comes to providing safe and enjoyable events for its community members. This past weekend, the community banded together to provide a safe Halloween option for children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. to participate in.

Organizer Shirley Wonsik said, “With the help of all the volunteers and businesses we were able to pull off this event which provided a safe option for the children of Mannville and their families to attend. It is because of them it is the success has been. I won’t name all the helpers who rolled up their sleeves and jumped in mightily, the kids who did grande jobs as well. You all helped to make KidSafe Halloween an unqualified success, thank you.”

The KidSafe Halloween party provided families the opportunity to participate in many Halloween activities such as a squeaky pig toss, marshmallow run, crafting, prize draws, and of course a Halloween costume grand march. The event was family-friendly with just a $2 admission, with infants to 3 years old, grandparents, and seniors for free. The variety of treats such as spooky cupcakes, cookies, worms and dirt ice cream were also very reasonably priced at just $1-$2 each, while a hotdog and chips were $3.

“The supporters of the Halloween event were huge and included businesses such as 881 Confectionery, Bauers Auto, Cabin Lake Welding, Cornerstone Co-op, Crocus Coulee Reworn, Good Anchor Charolais, H.A.F. Oilfield Services, Head Over Heelz, iTax Business Solutions, Kellys Massage, Lil Critter Croft, Mannville Car Wash, Mannville Golf Course, Mannville IDA Drug Store, Mannville Liquor Store, Obvious Enterprises, Pennecon/Ennel, Reflections Funeral Home, Remax- Prairie, Riel Industries, Royal Purple #205, Shellys Window, Shine, Something Sweet, Sunflower Restaurant, Sweets n Treats, Time And Again Boutique, UFA, the Vermilion Credit Union, Gilbert Roofing, Village of Mannville, Vintage Market, and Wessels” commented Wonsik.
