Guelph goes all out for Halloween

October 18, 2017 by  

The 2nd annual Downtown Trick or Treating event is taking place at the end of this month in Guelph.

The first stop for participants should be the Public Library at Norfolk. There, they can listen to some spooky stories and pick up a map of all the participating businesses in the downtown area. The map is important, as it is stamped at each stop and exchanged for raffle tickets for some great prizes.

City Hall will be providing some fun activities and even Mayor Cam Guthrie will show up in costume. On Old Quebec Street, Making Box will be performing live improve.

The final stop will likely be The Dragon comic books store where participants exchange their maps. They will also be able to pick up some free comic books (the 28th has been named Free Comic Book Day) and take part in the Hallowe’en Comic Fest. The festival will feature panel discussions with artists and writers of comic books. It will also feature a costume contest in which the top prizes are a $100 or $500 shopping spree at the comic book store.

The map will likely be provided by a Guelph printing company.

The Downtown Trick or Treating event will take place on October 28 from 12:00 to 3:00 PM. For the most up-to-date information, visit the event website.
