Trick or Treat Canada

Canadian Deals & Coupons


Have your plans for Halloween night yet?  Maybe your neighbourhood has the spirit for All- Hallows-Even and you can enjoy a swift trip around the block with some excited children gathering a pillowcase of sweets.

My neighbourhood?  Uh, no.  Most people close the doors, turn out the lights or leave town.  It’s not that I live in a less-than-reputable town but rather that the majority of those nearby do not condone certain ascpects of Halloween and therefore utterly ignore it.

The trick to getting our treats has become the annual Mall’o’Ween at the nearby shopping centre.  The stores have their employees dress for the occasion, they decorate the mall and hand out candy.  A bonus is that every year the mall has a science demonstration for kids full of excitement and (kid sized) explosions.  Some mall’s have Haunted Houses and other special plans.  A fun and safe way to get your candy.  Check your nearby mall’s website for events.

Last year my wife had the brilliant idea to throw a Halloween party.  It’s everything you expected it would be.  Apple bobbing?  Yes.  Brains in a bowl?  Yes.  Costume contest?  Of course (although at our party the kids were young enough to ALL deserve a prize).  This was surprising economical and our kids were excited to be host to their group of friends.

Check out some cheap and excellent party ideas by clicking here:

Other popular ideas that are popular that we have done before are a Haunted Corn Maize, Haunted Walks, and Haunted Tours.

Have other ideas?  Great locations for Halloween adventures?  Post them below to share!

    Sorry your town doesn’t embrace Halloween 🙁 Our small town goes all out for it and its so fun for the kids. There’s to city-wide haunted house contest for cash prizes and many stores stay open later to give out candy. The seniors home residents get together too and make goody bags for the kids. I’m 19 and me and my boyfriend dress up and go out on Halloween night. We don’t compete with the little ones for candy, but we do get offered it by people who don’t get many visitors. Every year we get pictures taken with kids on the street and its just a fun time for everyone. Hope everyone gets to enjoy dry weather this year (calling for rain where I am 🙁 )
