Students of all ages on the lower Kenai Peninsula are celebrating Halloween this week.

McNeil Canyon Elementary and Chapman School will each have fall carnivals on Friday.

Chapman’s Halloween Carnival goes from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will include a haunted house, silent auction, costume contest, raffle, and tons of fun carnival games, from a cake walk to mini golf.

McNeil’s carnival is from 4 to 7 p.m. The carnival is the school community council’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and the council will match any funds contributed for the Artists in the Schools program, field trip money and other school needs not covered by the regular budget.

West Homer and Paul Banks elementary schools each celebrated the holiday with parades on Wednesday afternoon. Students from Big Fireweed participated in West Homer’s parade, showing off their costumes to the whole community.

At Little Fireweed, artist and teacher Kiki Abrahamson got kindergarten, first- and second-graders into the Halloween spirit by reading to them by candlelight. Students also made pumpkin spice muffins and smoothies.

At Ninilchik School, Mrs. Boll’s K-1 class visited the Ninilchik Senior Center on Wednesday for a costumed luncheon and sing-along.

And Homer High School students celebrated an entire Hallo-week: Monday was Superhero Day, Tuesday was a Pink-Out, and Wednesday was all about costumes. On Tuesday, the student council sponsored a screening of Scooby Doo’s Halloween Special during FOL time. A quick costume contest at lunch on Wednesday gave students a chance to try out costume ideas before Saturday’s real deal.
