On Saturday, October 28th, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., Mayor Jim Watson will once again host a safe Halloween event in support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Basics Program. The Baby Basics Program targets the most vulnerable members of our society, infants and toddlers, whose parents lack the resources to adequately provide for them. As a result of this program, expensive items such as formula, baby food and diapers are made available to assist families in need.
Trick or Treat with the Mayor, along with some favourite costumed characters, in the Haunted Heritage House after passing through the Ghoulish Graveyard on Elgin Street. Follow the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy and all of her friends to the Halloween Dance Party on Marion Dewar Plaza, where guests can trick or treat and dance with more costumed characters. Guests can also take a ride on the GT Express, decorate a miniature pumpkin or be wowed by the outdoor magic potions lab and show. Inside City Hall there will be hot chocolate and treats in the Hocus Pocus Café.
I highly encourage all residents to consider stopping by this excellent annual event for a great evening of fun, games, and Halloween excitement. With the support of our corporate sponsors, a memorable evening is assured for everyone while supporting a very worthy cause.
