It’s always fun to spend Halloween evening in Glenelm, with so many neighbours getting into the spirit of things with decorations, bonfires, and other festivities!
GeNA is delighted to be co-hosting a bonfire at the Big Red Church on Halloween night. Be sure to stop by to warm up your hands and get some treats!
We’re proud to be known as a welcoming neighbourhood that’s a safe and inviting place for all kids and families, including those who come to Glenelm to enjoy an evening of trick-or-treating.
New to the neighbourhood and wondering how to prepare? Generally, the smallest kids start trick-or-treating between 5:30 and 6pm, and most kids have finished up by 8 or shortly thereafter. Many streets report 100-200+ trick-or-treaters, but it varies a lot!
We took an informal poll on the GeNA Facebook group to see how many trick-or-treaters folks usually get. Big thanks to our volunteer Shauna for creating this fantastic & helpful map (below) with all the results! Click on a ghost, you’ll see what people have reported as typical numbers on their street.
