On Saturday, October 26th, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., the Mayor will host a safe Halloween event in support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Supply Cupboard. The Baby Supply Cupboard targets the most vulnerable members of our society, infants and toddlers, whose parents lack the resources to adequately provide for them. As a result of this program, expensive items such as formula, baby food and diapers are made available to assist families in need. (Last year’s event resulted in the collection of 6,200 pounds of non-perishable items for the Baby Supply Cupboard.)
This year the festivities will begin in Jean Pigott Place where everyone is invited to “trick or treat” with the Mayor, meet numerous costumed characters and enjoy classic Halloween movies in Andrew S. Haydon Hall. The fun continues outdoors on Marion Dewar Plaza with horse-drawn wagon rides, pumpkin decorating, festive music and hot beverages. With the support of our corporate sponsors, a memorable evening is assured while supporting a very worthy cause.
