Halloween takes over Lazee G Ranch 

by Garrett Fodor

From goblins and ghouls, to superheroes and princesses, and offering everything from sweet treats to fun games and colourful costumes, Lazee G Ranch got into the Halloween spirit ahead of the special day.

On Saturday, riders, workers, volunteers, and even the animals got into the Halloween sprit, as Lazee G Ranch hosted its Halloween at the Farm event.

“It’s a lot of fun, seeing the children’s reactions to the horses dressed up in costumes and even just getting a chance to do the pony rides,” Hanna Colenutt, one of the instructors at Lazee G Ranch and one of the daughters of founder Brenda Gagnon, said. “We already had a lot of the costumes from our performances, so it’s great to use them and invite the kids to dress up and show off their costumes for a second day of the year.”

Featuring trick-or-treating in the stalls to pony rides, face painting, and even some horsing around, there was something for everyone. This year, they also had a scavenger hunt around the farm, featuring music and decorations. In total, there were more than 30 sets of hands who helped prepare the costumes, the property, and the activities for the day.

Colenutt noted she is excited to have people back on the farm once again, seeing the animals and the work her family has done to the ranch for generations. While they are still starting to get back to a normal, pre-pandemic schedule, Colenutt is excited to host future events.

She added she is grateful for all of the community members who came out on Saturday and who supported the ranch and trick-or-treated. Colenutt added that it was great to see so many smiling faces and wonderful costumes.

Next on the calendar at Lazee G Ranch is a lantern walk for the winter holidays. She invites those interested to follow Lazee G Ranch on social media for all of the latest news and announcements for upcoming events.
