Calling all trick-or-treaters to Halloween on Main

Barbies, action heroes, dinosaurs, witches and other tricker-or-treaters are invited to enjoy a “candy-fueled adventure” complete with free entertainment, face painting and a selfie booth at Halloween on Main.

The Town of Stouffville has teamed up with the Village of Stouffville to host the family-friendly event on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Main Street, which will be shut down between O’Brien Avenue and Park Drive for the bewitching festivities.

Enjoy Mega Magic Interactive Drum Shows at 12, 1 and 2 p.m. Add some sparkle to your Halloween costume with glitter tattoos from Party Helpers by Sol. Drop by Selfie Booth Toronto for a photo shoot with plenty of props and take a digital photo. The crew from Pirate Adventures with Pirate Life Toronto will offer face painting and balloon swords for wannabe swashbucklers.

The Town is also offering tips to enjoy a safe Halloween on Tuesday, Oct. 31. For starters, kids should go trick-or-treating with a group or with a trusted adult and should pre-arrange a meeting spot in the event anyone gets lost. Stay on sidewalks, be careful when crossing streets and use designated crosswalks whenever possible.

Wear bright colours, reflective tape or use glowsticks so drivers can see you. Never enter a stranger’s home for treats. Instead, wait outside for your candies. Finally, have a grown-up inspect your treats before indulging your sweet tooth.

Drivers are reminded to slow down and watch for trick-or-treaters who may cross the road without looking. If possible, avoid residential areas where there will be a high volume of trick-or-treaters. Though you may want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, avoid wearing a costume that makes it difficult to drive. Finally, homeowners who’ll be handing out treats should make sure their home is well lit and keep walkways to their house free of debris and obstacles.
