Halloween has come early to Victoria.

Scaredy Cats, a new television series associated with the Air Bud franchise, is currently being filmed in Fernwood.

Last week crews were shooting at George Jay Elementary and on nearby Empress Avenue.

Front yards were full of spooky decorations to simulate Halloween in January. One family’s home was used for some indoor scenes.
