As of the Government’s announcement on the 15th of October, children will be allowed to go trick-or-treating this year – but with some conditions. The Town invites all residents to carefully follow public regulations in place for Montreal West children to enjoy a safe Halloween! Please continue to stay vigilant.
Due to this exceptional situation, the Town will also be bringing Halloweek to your households! We have planned alternative activities for which you won’t need to leave your house. This will be a Halloween to remember, all while ensuring physical distancing!
