Halloween during a global pandemic is as weird as it gets. But this year we added a full moon and a time change to the mix.

And yet, all was calm in the South Okanagan and trick or treaters still had a great time. Caroline Holz took some great pictures of some witches she spotted on Osoyoos Lake on Halloween day. The towns of Keremeos and Osoyoos were treated to some impromtu fireworks.

Bob Young, of Osoyoos captured the stunning blue moon on Halloween.

Also, plenty of Pentictonites got creative to make sure trick or treaters could still have some fun and get candy safely.

Some made their own candy chutes, others used tongs. One resident hung the treat bags on a wire at her porch, while another threw candy all over the landing and had a sign that said take two.
