Trick or Treat with the Mayor
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson will be hosting the seventh annual Halloween party in support of the Ottawa Food Bank’s Baby Supply Cupboard on on Saturday, Oct. 26 at Ottawa City Hall from 5 to 8 p.m.
Mayor Watson along with some favourite costumed characters will be handing out treats in Jean Pigott Place, and you can also enjoy classic Halloween movies in Andrew S. Haydon Hall. The fun continues outside on Marion Dewar Plaza where children can decorate their very own pumpkin in the outdoor pumpkin patch, and enjoy horsedrawn wagon rides and more treats from our sponsors.
The Baby Supply Cupboard helps parents in need by providing items in high demand such as non-perishable baby food, formula, cereals, diapers and wipes. 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.
Admission to the Halloween party is a donation to the Baby Supply Cupboard. For more information, visit ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1.
Please note: The Heritage Building will not be part of the Halloween event this year. (C.K)
