The Telkwa Community Initiatives Society hosts an annual Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest every year. Join us between the Reading Centre and Eddy Park on that hallowed eve for lots of spooky fun. Warmed by hot chocolate, popcorn, pumpkin viewing and great company, all the goblins and ghouls can walk over to Eddy Park afterwards for the fireworks put on by the Telkwa Fire Department.
