Trick-or-treating, costume contest happening for Halloween this year in Brampton
Published October 15, 2021 at 10:39 am
Ghouls and goblins are expected to terrorize the streets of Brampton in a couple of weeks, as the City prepares for Halloween.
This year, children are encouraged to participate in trick-or-treating, provided they follow health and safety protocols.
The City is urging any would-be trick-or-treaters to stay home if they are unwell, and try and build face coverings into costumes (a costume mask is not a substitute for a face covering).
Additionally, trick-or-treaters are encouraged to stay outside as much as possible, avoid crowding houses and doorsteps, keep interactions brief, and use hand sanitizer frequently.
Those who intend to give out candy this year are instructed to refrain from doing so if experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19.
Further, those giving out candy are encouraged to only provide pre-packaged treats, wear face coverings when distancing is not possible, keep interactions short, and wash hands frequently with soap and water or sanitizer.
Moreover, some annual traditions that were cancelled last year due to the pandemic will be returning, including the annual costume contest, and the pumpkin party on November 1.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
