Happy Halloween, Kelowna. The morning update for Oct. 31

Ghouls, city council meetings and weather ... oh my!

Happy Halloween, Kelowna. Hope you had a ghoulishly good weekend and got to a few of the events around the city. We certainly did. Between the Thrill the World dance at Stuart Park and the various costume parties for little people, this may have been one of the busiest weekends we’ve had in awhile. And it’s not over yet. Check out our valley-wide map to see if there are any events you can hit before the day is over.

1.) As every person who has ever trick-or-treated knows, the most important thing on this day —aside from a great costume —is the weather. As per tradition, it’s not great. Have your little ones waterproof their costumes, Environment Canada is calling for showers on and off throughout the day.

While these rainy days aren’t perfect, they certainly are pretty. Take a look at this delightful glimpse into Gellatly Nut Farm.

2.) Today Kelowna council will convene and address all sorts of issues that could change the city. To get a glimpse into the agenda, click here.

Assistant editor Alistair Waters has done a preview of one issue to be dealt with today — temporary farm worker housing. To learn more about council’s plans to address the issue, read this.

3.) Hockey!  Nick Merkley had a goal and and assist, and Tomas Soustal scored the game winner in the third as the Kelowna Rockets downed the hometown Winterhawks 3-2 in WHL action Sunday night at the Moda Center in Portland.

4.) In world news, Italy has suffered another devastating quake, which is taking a toll. The nation’s strongest temblor in 36 years has pushed the number of those needing assistance to more than 15,000.

5.) Last but not least, like we said, it’s Halloween. Go pick up a paper today, which has a good list of all the events that remain. Here’s a peek at the Thrill the World dance held again at Stuart Park. These zombies are adorable. Speaking of adorable, if you have any pictures of little ghouls or princesses you’d like us to feature, please send them to edit@kelownacapnews.com.
