Trick or Treat on the Avenue
Every Halloween Oak Bay Village merchants host a giant community trick or treat! Participating merchants offer trick or treat in the stores from Foul Bay Road to Monterey Avenue between 2 and 5 pm. A complete list of participating merchants, identified by the pumpkin poster in their window, will be posted a week before Halloween.
Enjoy live music throughout the event as well as a variety of entertainment including jugglers, stilt walkers, hula hoopers, magic, balloon twisting and more!
Following the trick or treat the annual community bonfire will celebrate Halloween in Fireman’s Park, next to the fire hall (1703 Monterey Avenue). The ceremonial lighting of the bonfire will take place at 6:00 pm. Children are invited to help manage the bonfire throughout the evening, with firefighter assistance, by spraying water onto the fire with a real fire hose. The Kiwanis children’s costume parade will commence at 6:30. Hot dogs, pop, popcorn and candy are provided for children in costume courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Oak Bay.
