GANDER, NL – Ten years ago, Dawn Payne began decorating her house in Gander each Halloween to attract trick-or-treaters.
Last year, she had 392 visitors. This year, she prepared for 400.
Instead, “445 kids showed up.”

No one left empty handed though – there were enough treats for all.

“We did not run out of treats. But not much is left,” Payne said.
