Event Description

On Saturday, October 28th from 12-3pm, Downtown Trick-or-Treating is back for its 2nd year and WAY BIGGER! We have over 30 participating stores, and even City Hall is getting into the spooky spirit!

Start at the Guelph Public Library on Norfolk to hear a spooky story and pick up a map of the participating stores.

Then visit whichever stores you’d like, get candy (and maybe some other treats), and get your map stamped. Don’t miss out on visiting City Hall, which is being opened specially for the event! Mayor Cam Guthrie will be on hand, in costume, of course!

End your journey at The Dragon, where you’ll submit your map in exchange for raffle tickets in equal number to the stores you visited. You’ll be able to use those tickets to enter draws for prizes from each of the participating stores!

Plus! Check out The Making Box doing live improv in the concourse of Old Quebec Street from 1:30-2pm!

This event is for ALL ages, so, grown-ups, we want to see you in costume too!

And you’ll even get a bunch of FREE COMICS from The Dragon as part of Hallowe’en Comic Fest. https://www.halloweencomicfest.com/
