Trick or Treat with the Mayor


Mayor Jim Watson invites you to take part in an evening of spook-tacular festivities at Ottawa City Hall. The fun includes:

  • Trick or treating through the haunted house in the Heritage Building
  • Receive a warm welcome from the Mayor and get sweet treats from some of your favorite costumed characters in Jean Pigott Place
  • Decorate your very own miniature pumpkin in the outdoor pumpkin patch
  • Horse-drawn hay rides on Marion Dewar Plaza, where even more treats from sponsors await you!

Admission: A donation to the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Supply Cupboard. Ottawa Food Bank volunteers will be on-site to collect all your food, fund, and baby supply donations.
Time: 5 – 7:30 p.m.
Location: Ottawa City Hall – Heritage Building, Jean Pigott Place, and Marion Dewar Plaza.

This is the Mayor’s sixth annual Halloween event in support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Supply Cupboard which helps parents in need by providing items in high demand such as formula, baby food and diapers. Chronic shortages of donations of these basic needs make stocking the Baby Supply Cupboard one of the Food Bank’s most expensive, but most precious priorities.

Happy Hallowe’en!
