Still looking to make plans for Halloween?

It looks like the city can help.

The City of Mississauga recently announced that it’s hosting a number of Halloween events that will kick off this weekend and wrap up shortly after Halloween ends.

Trick or Treating at Celebration Square

If you have little ones, you might want to check out the Kids Halloween Trick-or-Treat on Saturday, Oct. 27 at Celebration Square.

That event, which will run from noon to 3:00 p.m., will allow kids to trick-or-treat through Sweet Tooth Central and play a life-sized game of Hungry Hungry Hippos. There will also be giant Jenga, Connect 4, play blocks, a 10 ft Etch-a-Sketch and more.

More tech-savvy attendees can play videogames on the big screens.

There will also be some live entertainment.

According to the city, families can check out the Rock the Arts Puppets: Superhero Showdown live shows at 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.

Attendees can also take a ride on the Candy Corn Carts, check out the Unicorn Play Patch or snap a selfie with a 10ft octopus who reportedly loves candy.

Fantastic Beasts of Benares

Fantastic Beasts fans might want to check out the Fantastic Beasts of Benaras event on Sunday, Oct. 28 at the Benares Historic House.

The event, which will run from noon to 4:00 p.m., will invite attendees to discover the hidden magical beasts of Benares.

According to the city, event-goers can meet and greet real life reptiles or enjoy a game of Quidditch with the whole family.

Park Your Pumpkin

The celebrations don’t end on Oct. 21.

On Thursday, Nov. 1, residents can head to the Bradley Museum to park their pumpkin.

The event will let you do something fun with your pumpkin.

“Is your pumpkin sad and lonely the day after Halloween? Afraid of what the future holds? Give your pumpkin new life by bringing it to Bradley Museum’s pumpkin parade,” the city says.  

You can drop off your pumpkin anytime during the afternoon on Nov. 1 or in the evening where you can wander the Bradley grounds after dark. There will be music, cider, cookies and other family-friendly activities.
