OCTOBER 31st: Today is Halloween and Our Halloween Story Walk!
On October 31st, while we will not be having trick or treating Downtown, feel free to participate in our challenges on this Saturday! We will also have a special Halloween Story Walk created by the Halton Hills Public Library, that will take you through a Halloween story in our Downtown. You can also complete your scavenger hunt or vote for your favourite decorations on this day! Please ensure you are following physical distancing protocols while in the Downtown and bring face masks with you so you can see what Halloween goodies our Downtown businesses have in store! Happy Halloween!
