A huge thank you to the Howl team who did it again; the 31st Halloween Howl was another outstanding party! This event would not have happened if Ravena and Mandy had not stepped up to lead the show (with Borja supporting during her last year at Tennyson). Thank you!
Gore lovers got their fill of horror in the Graveyard, Haunted House, and with creepy stories in the library, while the competitive among us had tons of fun at the Batty Bingo, Cake Walk, Jello Eating Contest, Haunted Hockey and Carnival Games in the gym. The kids boogied on down at the Dead Disco and had their minds blown by the psychic powers of the fortune tellers.
This year’s Howl was also the end of an era for some as the current Von Schtinko brothers hosted their last show after 8 (or 9?) years. However, we’ve been reliably informed that some awesome parents have stepped up to take over, so the Von Schtinko’s will live again.
But the Howl isn’t just about spooky fun and games; the Grade 7 parents served up an amazing spread of treats and dinner to sustain the revelers in support of Grad 2008. Thank you, it was delicious.
The pumpkin carving contest and costume contest judges had the toughest job of the Howl again this year. You can find the winners of the pumpkin carving contest here. Thank you Randal Kurt Photography for taking the fantastic costume photos. You can see the photos below.
Of course none of this would have happened if it weren’t for everyone who volunteered. An enormous thank you to Howl Co-Chairs Borja Fisher Brown, Ravena Berar and Mandy Hillier as well as the fabulous coordinators who headed up rooms or took on other key organizational roles. And a huge shout out to all the amazing parents who volunteered to work on the night, bake a cake in advance (over 70 cakes were donated!), and those who came to set up and clean up. There wouldn't be a Howl without you. It is absolutely astounding that we can put a call out for over 200 volunteers and fill every position!
