PHOTOS: Oak Bay Village teems with costumed guests for family Halloween event

Thousands flock to The Avenue for kids games, circus performances and treats

Families flocked to Oak Bay Avenue as the annual Halloween celebration returned Oct. 31.

A circus atmosphere with hoop dancers, magic and trick-or-treating hit the street made pedestrian-only for the event hosted by Oak Bay Village, the colloquial name for the Oak Bay Business Improvement Assocation.

With the usual community bonfire cancelled due to the drought that lingered well into fall, Oak Bay firefighters joined the festivities on The Avenue.
