CHESTERVILLE — ‘Trick-or-treating’ started early on Halloween in Chesterville. Students of Chesterville Public School (CPS) made their annual trek around the village during the school day, Oct. 31.

They stopped to visit the residents of the Garden Villa along the way to show off their costumes. Staff of the retirement home handed out treats and provided each class with a book. “Leftovers of books and candies will be handed out during trick or treating tonight,” said Development Manager, Lynne Smith. The walk was almost cut short as rain started to fall while students left the home. Mother Nature quickly changed her mind and the rain slowed as the sun reappeared.

Many children looked to the sky and searched for a rainbow.

As the skies cleared and the children marched on, the streets filled with spectators and students caused a traffic jam as they crossed the street.

Perhaps the most comical and fitting costume of the day was this young boy dressed as an elderly woman. He joked and said, “I think I’m getting too old for this!” Smith photo, Nation Valley News
