Celebrate Halloween at our wildly popular FREE trick-or-treating event! Families are welcomed by businesses to trick-or-treat in costume throughout the downtown, collecting goodies at participating downtown businesses. Treating stops are highlighted on maps provided, featuring businesses and activities along the way! Our volunteers will also be on the look out for best costume to win a grand prize!
This event is rain or shine.
Start your adventure at the Burlington Downtown Tent located on Brant Street outside of 375 Brant Street. First 2,000 ghouls & goblins will receive a free treating bag! Route maps will also be provided on-site.
This year Rogers Hometown Hockey is also taking place in our downtown core the same weekend! Treats in our Streets trick-or-treaters are invited to take part in a Zombie Walk parade beginning at the Burlington Downtown Tent at 1:00pm as we walk towards the main stage outside City Hall and kick-off Rogers Hometown Hockey! Full details on this event can be found here.
With the addition of Rogers Hometown Hockey, we’re expecting this free event to be a busy one! In addition to adding more animation all across the downtown (to avoid congestion) we are investing in an increased police presence and crossing guards. The safety of our little ghouls and goblins is top priority.
Here are some helpful hints to ensure all the little ghosts and goblins in our streets and are safe to haunt from place to place, collecting goodies along the way!
1. Look both ways and review the rules of the road with your kids! All streets will remain open to vehicles during the event, so please make sure to use designated the crosswalks and our extra police-directed traffic areas to safely move around the neighbourhood.
2. Check all of your treats thoroughly and carefully; our event is not peanut-free!
3. Stay mindful of your surroundings and if you have any concerns, our event coordinators and team of volunteers in the orange shirts are here to help.
Let’s work together to make this year’s Treats in our Streets event safe, fun and a treat for everyone!
NEW this year there will also be a continuous FREE shuttle from the North side of the Burlington GO Station to the downtown John Street Terminal beginning at 9:30am.
Thank you to our proud sponsors for making this event possible: Burlington Taxi, Stoner & Company Family Law, Rocca Sisters & National Homes for making this event possible!
