The Campbell River Twinning Society is partnering with the Museum at Campbell River to make both of their fun events scheduled for Oct. 27 easily accessible for families.
The Museum’s Hallowe’en event combines a spooky tour through the galleries with actors in costume, with other activities including crafts, storytelling, Lego play, and a visit with an ambassador owl from Mountainair Avian Rescue Society.
The Twinning Society’s Pumpki-bana event takes the Canadian tradition of pumpkin carving and mixes it with the Japanese tradition of flower arranging, called Ikebana. Pumpki-bana has been happening for 15 years and is in celebration of Campbell River’s sister city relationship with Ishikari, Japan. Both events will take place at the Museum at Campbell River, 470 Island Highway, on Oct. 27 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Hallowe’en at the Museum costs a minimum $2 donation per person. The Pumpki-bana event is free and will be located outside of the Museum entrance. For more information go to www.crmuseum.ca
