It was a fairly quiet Halloween in Penticton, says RCMP Supt. Brian Hunter.

“Halloween was a relatively uneventful night with a few reports of fireworks being set off in various locations throughout the city,” said Hunter on Monday.

There were no major incidents for police, he said.

Penticton’s Fire Department was also not very busy, according to the fire dispatch list.

Most communities across the Okanagan didn’t experience any increased calls for police service.

Last Halloween in Penticton was also uneventful, aside from fireworks. There were 44 calls in Penticton for police with the majority being for fireworks or firecrackers, both illegal without a permit.
