To give families an idea of what to expect for Halloween this year in Knottwood, we are putting together an online Halloween Map to indicate which homes are handing out treats to the kiddos and/or which homes will have fun Halloween displays to visit.
We would love to have as many Knottwood homes on the map as possible to help families know which homes will be handing out treats. The map will also let trick-or-treaters know how each home will be safely handing out candy.
Since the map will also feature homes that have Halloween displays, people of all ages will be able to use it even if they aren’t trick-or-treating — you can still get in the Halloween spirit by taking a walk throughout our neighbourhood and view the different spooky yards!
If you live in Knottwood and would like your home on the map, you can register below. The deadline to complete the registration form is Wednesday, October 28 at midnight.
The Halloween map will be available for families and trick-or-treaters on Friday, October 30.
Have a COVID-safe Halloween!
If you are handing out candy, please follow these recommendations:
- Ask trick-or-treaters to knock or call out instead of ringing a doorbell;
- Wear a non-medical mask that fully covers your nose and mouth;
- Use tongs to hand out pre-packaged candy to avoid handling treats;
- Find creative ways to maintain distance from trick-or-treaters, such as handing out treats from your driveway or front lawn, setting up a candy table; or building a candy slide. AHS does NOT recommend setting up a self-serve bowl of bulk candy.
If you are a TRICK-OR-TREATER, please follow these guidelines:
- Trick-or-treat with your family or cohort, remain within your community and stay 2 metres apart from others
- Choose costumes that allow a non-medical mask to be worn underneath
- Avoiding touching doorbells or railings; use sanitizer after touching surfaces, and wash your hands and disinfect packages before eating candy.
Please DO NOT go out trick or treating or hand out candy if you feel ill (even if symptoms are minor) or are isolating.
With increasing COVID-19 cases in Edmonton, it’s important to ensure that any trick-or-treating is done safely. Let’s all work to keep our neighbours safe.
