While Dr. Theresa Tam hasn't ruled out trick-or-treating this year-she suggested trick-or-treating outdoors while practicing physical distancing should be fine-it's unlikely many parents will partake in the annual tradition, especially given the fact Ontario has relegated certain regions to a modified Stage 2 due to a spike in COVID-19 cases. "Trick-or-Treat Around the Lake" will be held October 30 at Shamrock Park.

"Given that this year has significantly changed how we socially gather to celebrate events, consumers are now set on making this Halloween the best they can, to create a sense of normalcy for their children", said Suzy President, Avi Savar.

The report also revealed 80% of consumers plan to purchase the same amount of Halloween candy this year, if not more, although half (50%) will be surprised to get trick-or-treaters.

This year's event, on October 30 from 3-5 p.m.at Shamrock Park on Senoia Road, is arranged to practice safe distancing for the kids, and will include giant inflatables and a host of Halloween decorations.

The health unit has recommended a number of alternative celebrations including a "virtual costume party online with friends" or an "at-home candy treasure hunt".
