It seemed as if every costume under the sun made an appearance on the streets of downtown Williams Lake Tuesday afternoon for the Downtown Trick R’ Treat event.

Pumpkins and clowns, wizards and washing machines made their way from business to business, with buckets of candy and passport in hand.

As part of the event, trick-or-treaters could get stamps on their passport from participating local businesses for a chance to be entered in a prize draw at the end of the evening.

This event was one of many Halloween-themed activities around Williams Lake to celebrate the spooky holiday.
