The community in Sooke really pulled together for Hannah Day on Tuesday evening, November 3.
As we posted earlier (A street in Sooke celebrates Halloween on November 3. Here’s why…), a special Halloween was planned for a little girl who couldn’t do the original date because of a trip to the BC Children’s hospital for cancer treatment.
Hannah, who has been fighting cancer almost her entire life, and her little sister Hailey went out Trick or Treat-ing on November 3 instead on a tiny little dead-end street in Sunriver. At least 50 people (adults and children), many in costume, added their presence to create the sense that it really was Halloween.
And, for Hannah and Hailey, it was.
Even the Sooke Fire Fighters were out, attending with a fire truck and emergency vehicle, lights and all. At least eight fire fighters, all in full gear, attended. Oodles of candy were handed out to all the children.
Following is a photo gallery of just some of the magic that lit up the cold but windless Halloween night on Stonewood Drive, this November 3, 2015.
