MARTINTOWN, Ontario – The rainy weather did not stop Martintown residents to celebrate Hallowe’en.  Trick or Treaters walked along the sidewalks of this small South Glengarry community on All Hallows Eve, while many homes were decorated for the holiday.

Volunteers at the Martintown Mill were able to create a safe, but spooky experience for people of all ages on the main floor of this historic buildings.

After being greeted at the front door by a costumed entity, visitors are escorted into the main area, which following this year’s arachnoid theme, is decorated by spiders of all sizes and all kinds of creatures trapped in their webs.

A couple of friendly ghouls provide a Hallowe’en treat before the visitors are photographed with the picture to be posted on the mill’s Facebook page later. Afterwards they exit by the side door, ready to continue with their Hallowe’en tour of the village.
