PARK96 – Friday, October 30, 5:30pm-7:30pm

Park96 is hosting a socially distancing, no touch trick or treating experience through out the Park. 20 Stations will be set up using a candy distribution slide to get treats from the volunteers to the kids using tongs to put candy onto the slide. All participants will be required to ware a mask to ensure the safety for all.

To register, chat with your cohort and register for a start time that works for you. Each start time is allotted 45 minutes to complete the circuit allowing lots of time for all kids to get through the stations with no crowds and adhering to all Alberta Health Services outdoor event regulations. The theme for the evening is Just Keep Moving! This is a cohort event not a social gathering event.

THE HALL – Saturday, October 31 2:00-2:30pm & 3:00-3:30pm (for ages 4+)

The Hall is hosting Christopher Cool the magician, pumpkin carving contest and lots of fun! There are two time slots to register for, allowing 30 kids in each while parents linger outside on the lovely Hall patio. All kids will need masks and are able to sit with other kids in their cohort for safety.

Please, if anyone in your family is feeling unwell stay home. If you notify Park96 of your intention to stay home for safety reasons we will drop off a no touch Treat Bag. Just email park96@telus.net to make sure no one misses out on a least some fun.
