Halloween Celebration – Entertaining, fun and creative activities

The City of Pointe-Claire invites children of all ages to come and have fun with family or friends in celebration of Halloween!

Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28

A very special and spooky program has been organized for everyone at the Central Library (100 Douglas-Shand Avenue).

On Friday, October 27, teenagers (Ages 13+) and adults are invited to watch a horror movie at 7 p.m. Registration is required at the Children’s Info desk at the Central Library.

On Saturday, October 28, children and families will be offered a makeup workshop at 1:30 p.m., followed by the very first zombie walk, at 3 p.m.

For more information, see the Halloween section in leisure programming.

Sunday, October 29

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., young and young at heart are invited to the Arthur-E.-Séguin chalet (365 Saint-Louis Avenue). The event and the building will be accessible for all and we hope that many of you will attend! Dressed in a fun or original costume, or one that embraces this traditional celebration, everyone will have the opportunity to participate in the many fun and creative activities offered for an exciting and successful celebration.

Inflatable structures, game stations, treasure hunt, henna tattoos, magician, and roaming animation await you, as well as a benefit BBQ organized by the WIAIH foundation. Popcorn, cotton candy, hot chocolate and sweets will be offered at the event.

In addition, a limited quantity of bilingual Treat Accessibility laminated signs will be provided during the event to promote accessibility for Halloween.

Halloween, a celebration for everyone

We would like to remind you that you can consult the Treat Accessibly website at any time, which will allow you to access the various recommendations ahead of this celebration, including:

  • Remove all obstacles from your paths.
  • Ensure your pathway is illuminated.

Does your residence not have a staircase? Are you planning to hand out candy from residence’s driveway or shared parking area? All these features allow your home to be accessible to everyone.

We invite you to print the Treat Accessibly free lawn sign from the website and ensure to have it installed before Halloween to clearly indicate that your house will be accessible to all during the big event.

If you choose to give out candies, Allergy Quebec recommends that you decorate a teal-coloured pumpkin to let children know that you are offering allergen-free candies or non-food treats. In doing so, all our scary monsters and witches can enjoy a carefree Halloween!
